More than 100 tractors made their way through the East Devon countryside.

The stunning bank holiday weather brought out big crowds as 120 agricultural vehicles set off from Colyton on Monday for the annual vintage tractor run.

Many of the tractors pulled trailers packed with colourfully dressed passengers, having set off from the Peace Memorial Playing Fields.

The procession made its way through Whitford, on to Musbury Cross, driving across Gay’s Farm fields and Colin Corbett’s Castle Wood.

They then travelled through Musbury before reaching almost to the top of Musbury Castle, on to Combpyne before heading to the back of Lyme Regis, on to the Cannington Viaduct and into Uplyme.

This year’s event was held in aid of Axminster Hospital League of Friends and the RNLI.
