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.
