Traditional Skeyton Trosh to celebrate vintage farm machinery
The final flourish of bygone summer farming days will be thrashed out in north Norfolk this weekend.
The Skeyton Trosh is the last of the vintage farm machinery working days of the season.
And as usual a special treat for enthusiasts has been lined up by organisers.
The rare harvesting combination pictured above was coupled up in a north Norfolk field ahead of the annual historic farming and charity day.
The 1929 Wallis 20-30 tractor being driven by Richard Culley was hitched up to a Massey Harris Number 5 binder, with owner Graham Kirk at the controls.
They were harvesting heritage wheat ready for the Skeyton Michaelmas Trosh this Sunday September 27.
The event, which has been running for eight years, is a chace for country-loving people to see a vintage farming working day. It has grown over that time from attracting 50 people to up to 1,000.

It was popular as it was the last outdoor event of its kind in the calendar.
This year's special theme is 'single cylinder tractors at work.'
A full programme of vintage machinery will be in action including threshing, ploughing, cultivating and horticultural tractors.
Steam engines and a large static display will also be on view, along with tractor pulling.
The Trosh, which is raising funds for Buxton Scouts, Skeyton Village hall and the church, is at Breck Farm, Skeyton (NR10 5AW) from 10am to 4pm. Admission £4.
