Vintage Tractors and Working Steam

South East Vintage Tractor Club (SEVAC) organise this area of the Showground

The Vintage Tractor and Working Steam section gives visitors an interesting perspective of the farm tractor and how it has developed over the decades. On display there is a wide variety of vintage tractors all designed and built to achieve the same thing - reduce the manual effort needed on every farm up and down the country, as well as increasing production and efficiency.

Popular models such as Fordson and Massey Ferguson are well represented, together with rarer models built in much smaller numbers or were imported to the UK.

This year we showcased a tractor powered sawbench and a couple of steam traction engines, part of the Claude Jessett collection based at Tinkers Park in nearby Hadlow Down.
