This year’s Honiton Hill Rally was hit with unpredictable weather - enjoying sunny skies and rain showers all within 48 hours.

Held over the bank holiday weekend at Smeatharpe Airfield, near Honiton, the event was visited by hundreds of people.

They had the chance to get close to a variety of vintage agricultural vehicles, from tractors to military vehicles.

Several stalls and attractions were also well received, including wood sawing, arts and crafts, fair organs, auction ring events and children’s entertainment.

Tractor pulling - a new attraction at this year’s hill rally - also drew in big crowds.
