This is very popular not only with the rural communities preserving their heritage and using it as living history, people from all walks of life enjoy shows and presentations.
Shows around the UK and also Arigultural Museums display these aged pieces of machinery that worked the land.
This is a very enjoyable interest for all ages, for young children helping parents preserve the machinery to visiting the shows and maybe even being lucky to get a ride in an old tractor.

We all enjoy looking back at our heritage and it is a wonderful sight when we see 'living' history, men and women around the UK and all over the world take many different agricultural items and preserve and repair them, these items are the forefathers of the way farming is carried out today and is so interesting to see the transformation in the mechanics. Whole families enjoy days out at agricultural shows and museums where some of the machinery is often on display.
Potential to preserve history, have fun and meet new people with similar interests, talk to the public about your interest by attending a show.
Costs will vary greatly for this interest from the purchase of the item to repair and restore to the repair and restoration costs. Check up to date prices.
