The Swanton Morley Tractor and Bygone Rally was held at the village hall and included a huge range of attractions.

A cavalcade of vintage machines took a tour of local roads and even stopped at the Mermaid in Elsing for a much-needed drink.

Committee member Tina Potter said: “We had an amazing weekend with hundreds of people attending each day. We had Big Andy Clarke from Big Andy’s gym in Dereham showing off his skills along with some of his friends.

“Sarah Probert sang some 1940s music in the main ring whilst we had the land army girls display. This was along with our usual classic car and tractor displays.
