    I would guess the oldest person who has vintage machinery is a gentleman from near Whittlesey. He has an amazing horse drawn carts and implements Caterpillar D2, International crawler, Case, Nuffield 4/60, Fordson Major, water-washer Standard Ford, a trio of John Deeres, Field Marshall Series I, II & III, David Brown Cropmaster & 2D. Take a look at this website for further details.

    Just found this site and thought I would share a memory of my grandad who was a stockman for a farmer at Bury near Ramsey, just about in the fens.

    I can remember him telling me on more than one occasion how he had walked cattle from the farm at Bury to Cambridge crossing the Great Ouse using the ferry at the Pike and Eel Needingworth.
