Set up for sawing tree trunks into planks. The H&S aspect made even me wince a little.
Tractor pulling - this was Grey Ghost. Sorry, poor picture but I just had to include it.
Even a loco on a short track that had been laid.
I don't know how many attended but I have rarely seen so many people at any event and it's a huge show ground.
