A family event filled with agricultural attractions welcomed crowds of visitors yesterday.

The 11th Ingworth Trosh boasted exciting showcases including vehicle displays, threshing and - for the first time in its history - tractor pulling.

It involves old tractors, which have been modified with lorry engines, pulling weights up to 100 tonnes, in a straight line.

Alan Witham, farm contractor and one of the organisers, said the new attraction went 'exceptionally well' and he thought this year had seen record numbers, thanks to the good weather and family atmosphere.

'For some reason this show seems to fascinate people. They keep on turning up to it.

'It's what you would call an old country fair.'

Money raised by the day will go towards the running costs of St Mary the Virgin Church in Erpingham, St Lawrence Church in Ingworth and St Ethelbert's Church in Alby.
