Tracks charity ploughing is now in its 11th year and was held in North Elmham on Saturday, October 8.

Tractors and crawlers from as far afield as Ipswich, Hertfordshire, and Wisbech travelled to the event.

Many horticultural machines from the local area were also busily ploughing.

And a major attraction at this year's Tracks was the very rare David Brown DB4 crawler, owned by Neville Websdale, which ploughed for the first time.
