Vintage farm machines will demonstrate how ploughing, threshing and baling used to be done on Norfolk fields as a rural fair returns for its 15th year.
The Trosh and Country Fair, formerly known as The Ingworth Trosh, will feature a Ransome threshing machine, owned by the Witham family of Erpingham, which sorted grain from straw and was a forerunner of the modern combine harvester.
It also includes other vintage machinery and tools, sheep shearing, birds of prey and – with organisers aiming for a greater 'country fair' emphasis this year – an extended array of family entertainment, country crafts, exhibits and stalls.
Events in the ring will include a sheep dog demonstration with ducks, a fun dog show open to all breeds, and Tug of War competitions for adults and children.
The annual fund-raising event will raise money for the medieval churches of Erpingham, Ingworth and Alby.
