Sunshine and blue skies meant perfect conditions when 120 agricultural vehicles set off from Colyton on Monday for the annual vintage tractor run.

The stunning Bank Holiday weather brought out big crowds as the tractors – many pulling trailers packed with colourfully dressed passengers – assembled at the Peace Memorial Playing Fields.

First stop was Whitford and then they headed 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, with its spectacular views.

Next they went to Combpyne before heading cross country to the back of Lyme and then on to the Cannington Viaduct and into Uplyme, where everyone had lunch at the village hall, kindly provided by April Moore, a local farmer’s wife.

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