I've uploaded my unedited pictures from Casterton here: https://imgur.com/a/eBNAs

As ever, despite a bit of iffy weather on Saturday, it was a brilliant weekend with lots of interesting stuff and good company. I took a couple of long distance views of the engine line as there was a good crowd viewing and asking about the exhibits all day. Plenty of variation in the exhibits again as well which is nice to see, as Brian who has just taken over the engine section explained, 'you don't want to watch the same film every week!'.

Alan had his mangle out this year, it's the Gooseberry Blower next time!

Cheers,

Dan

Just a couple of extra pictures, which may give a flavour of why Little Casterton is different:



Looking across the site from the engine line, immediately in front is the tractor working area, where a variety of very old and quite interesting tractors churned away all weekend (and broke down quite regularly!). Across the dip you will see where they accumulate, and on the rise in the distance you may be able to make out where the crawlers were also ploughing.
You may notice a complete lack of commercial stalls, junk, caterers, etc. The big tent provides drinks and food supplied by the club at very reasonable prices.



Looking to the right, up the engine line and towards the top of the hill, you can perhaps spot activity on the skyline. Here there are cereal crops left for the antique harvesters and so on. Some of it is cut and fed into the steam thresher in the first picture.
Over the top of the hill, and out of sight of my camera, were two teams of Fowler ploughing engines, dragging a 6-furrow plough and a substantial cultivator back and forth. They were working hard (like they were on the clock!) and covering some ground.

Whilst the weather was a bit "iffy" on Saturday, Sunday was glorious and there was a good crowd. Some had travelled very long distances to be there (Devon, Ireland, etc.)
I don't know if there are other similar events around the country, but there's no show that I attend that is quite like Casterton.
