The hunt is on to find Britain's oldest working tractor - and the EDP wants to find the oldest working piece of farming machinery in East Anglia.
LammaXchange, a farming machinery website, has discovered some hidden gems that date back to before the Second World War in a competition to find the oldest working tractor in the UK.
Entries for the competition include an Allis Chalmers, two Fordson Standards and a number of old grey Massey Fergusons many of which are still going strong on Britain's farms.
'The number of old tractors that are still out there earning their keep, is testament to the manufacturers, as well as the can-do philosophy of British farmers to keep these lovely old machines going,' said James Rickard from LammaXchange.
•You can email your photos of old tractors to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet to @edp24.
