Industrial and Agricultural Sections
Industrial Trucks Section: Pete Merrett
These incredibly versatile machines could be found in many industries, from huge industrial complexes to market gardens. They were adapted to perform many functions from hauling heavy loads around factories to mobile cranes, even a fire engine!
One of the best known builders of industrial trucks was the famous firm of R A Lister of Dursley, Glos (now sadly closed), not many miles from the show site.
There have been around 60 examples of these wonderful machines on display at previous shows.
Plants and Machinery: John Stickland
Who can recall walking part a building or roadworks site years ago and seeing strange machines carrying out a multitude of tasks that helped to build or maintain Britain?
In this section you will see examples of such machines, from concrete mixers to dumper trucks, that carried out mundane yet vital tasks in keeping things going.
Happiness – is a man driving his dumper!
Tractors Section: Sarah Keates
One of our biggest sections, with a record number of over 200 classic tractors attending our previous shows. The large display will feature a vast array of vintage tractors with both overseas and domestic manufacturers represented, plus a diverse selection of models, types and modifications dating from the 1920s to the 1980s showcasing manufacturers such as David Brown, Ford, John Deere, Massey Ferguson, Nuffield, Zetor, Leyland, Farmall and Field Marshall to name but a few.
One of the rarest tractors still in operation, a WWII Wood Burning Tractor, has attended our previous shows. Wood gas vehicles were used during World War II, as a consequence of the rationing of fossil fuels.
Horticultural Equipment Section: Andrew Hall
New for 2022, the Horticultural Equipment section provides the opportunity to see some rare and fascinating artifacts from the world of horticultural equipment and machinery, including examples of the world’s first lawnmowers designed and patented by local man Edwin Beard Budding of Stroud, Gloucestershire, way back in 1830.
Please note that entries have now closed for the 2022 show.
