Thousands flocked to Prickwillow over the weekend for the village’s annual ploughing festival.
Attractions included majestic heavy horses ploughing the fields, along with vintage and classic tractors also being used to show-off ploughing skills in the competitions.
The two-day event on Saturday and Sunday was organised by Prickwillow Drainage Engine Museum and T W H Clarke & Son, based at Green Farm.
There was also numerous steam engines in action as well as stationary engines, trade stands, crafts and bygones galore.
A chance to get up close and personal with some alpacas also proved very popular with visitors.
You may also want to watch:
Live music and entertainment, children’s activities, hot food and drink and a real ale bar.
Victorian enactors were also on hand to allow visitors a chance to dress-up and have their photos taken with a Victorian camera.
