We are delighted that on Sunday 1st September Heage Windmill will again be visited by a large collection of vintage Tractors. These machines displaced the horse as the motive power for farms and similar activities and now they are themselves being regarded as ‘collectables’. They will stand displayed adjacent to our 222-year-old wind machine!
They will include 60-year-old Fordsons and Massey Fergusons. John Allsop, who organises the Tractor group, said ‘We are always happy to come to the windmill ’. The tractors will be supported by some stalls, including a burger van and if the weather permits, our now quite famous bric-a-brac stall, where one person’s junk becomes someone else’s treasure!
The tractors will arrive from about 10:30 am and will be with us until around 3:30 pm. The mill of course will be open for guided tours.
All funds raised will go to the upkeep of the Mill.
