Vintage tractors and historic machinery went on display for the public to enjoy during a two-day festival in Yorkshire.

The Tractor Fest, held on June 8 and June 9, featured British Nuffield tractors, Morris Motors and Petter barn engines.

Other family-friendly attractions at the event at Newby Hall near Ripon included working machinery, tractor rides, cars and trucks, interactive exhibits, food stalls and trade stands.

New to this year’s event was the ‘March of the Tractors’, which saw vintage tractors make their way from Newby Hall to Ripon market square.

The two-day event was organised by the Yorkshire Vintage Association.
