Series of Photographs taken early 1980 featuring some of the machinery on display. The photos are described as follows:

BA2357~1 - Mr Fred Hornsby at the front of the combine. Fred worked for John Henly on Bampton Deanery farm and in later years for his son Roy. This picture approximately 1980.
BA0C0D~1 - Detail of a traction engine. There would have been one at opposite sides of the field and the implement, such as a plough or potato drill, would be pulled from side to side by the steel hawser seen here under the engine. The engine provided the power to turn the cable drum to wind in the cable. Originally the engine would have been fired by solid fuel but many were later converted to run on oil.
