ON the weekend of September 21-22 a special event took place in Lilbourne, Northamptonshire, where the Blue Force Tractor Club held a working day and static display for County and Roadless tractors
This year County celebrates its 90th anniversary while Roadless also celebrates its 100th anniversary.
Enthusiasts from all over the UK, Ireland and Europe assembled in Lilbourne to see the tractors in action in this two-day event, with ploughing and cultivating being the main theme.
The weather was excellent on Saturday with temperatures reaching 25 degrees and was superb for spectators to see these very popular machines at work in the large demonstration fields.
Sunday was overcast with some rain in the afternoon but the event was very good and well worth the effort of attending.
The Irish County Club members put on a superb show at the event along with the Cooke family from Ballygowan in County Down, who also put on a very good display of Roadless tractors at Lilbourne.
Well done to all those who made the effort to take their tractors across the Irish sea to England and to celebrate these classic 4wd machines and make the two-day event a very memorable occasion.
