Celebrating its 20th year more than 1000 entries of vintage and heritage tractors, commercial vehicles, stationary engines, and agricultural equipment competed for top honours at the Newark Vintage Tractor and Heritage Show.

The Vale of Belvoir Machinery Group created a special exhibit for the show, collating one example for each theme of the event. Representing 100 years of row crop tractors was chairman, Larry Parker’s own 1953 John Deere 40; one of only four in the UK, and exhibited with the only known corn planter in the country.

Representing 60 years of the new performance Fordson range was a 1964 Fordson Super Major owned by Adrian and Julie Witcomb and exhibited by their son Lewis.

Group secretary, Linda Kemp and her husband Andrew brought along their 1952 Series I Land Rover, to celebrate the marque’s 75th anniversary, while Alan Nickols showed off his 1948 Field Marshall Series II for Marshall Sons and Co’s 175th anniversary.

The show attracts exhibitors from far and wide – travelling the furthest was Gordon Riddell from Aberdeen, who brought a 1938 Marshall 12/20, a 1945 Marshall Model M, a 1950 Field Marshall Series 3, and a 1957 Marshall MP6.
