The Doubleday team were on the road again over the Bank holiday weekend attending the 41st annual Stradsett vintage rally and Country fair, which is held in the grounds of Stradsett Park near Downham Market in Norfolk.

The show has grown over the years from a small event where local enthusiasts could meet to show off their stationary engine restoration projects right up up to the current two day event attracting over 5000 visitors, the attractions include military and ex-military Land Rovers, heavy horse demonstrations, working Spaniel demonstrations and large parades of various machines including tractors, motorcycles, cars, commercial vehicles, sprayers and spreaders along with stalls and trade stands from local suppliers and specialist services for the vintage collector, new to the show for 2017 was a tractor pulling contest in which modified mini-tractors compete to see which can pull a weighted sled the furthest over a measured distance, the whole show is a real mixture where both old and new combine together with a common interest in all things countryside !
