A good crowd turned out at Heage Windmill recently to see a plethora of restored vintage tractors.

The fleet of vintage vehicles arrived at the mill and gained plenty of interest - especially from two-year-old Charlie Pringle.

Charlie, of Belper, visited the attraction as part of his birthday weekend and as our pictures show he was certainly kept entertained.

Alan Gifford, founder trustee, says the afternoon was a huge success.

He said: “After a wet morning it all dried up such that the assortment of vintage tractors visiting Heage windmill could be seen in all their full glory.

“There were green, blue, red, yellow and grey ones of various makes, such as Massey Ferguson, Fordson, David Brown and many others.

Heage Windmill is open every weekend, 11am-4pm, until late October.
