They are the vehicles that have worked in our Norfolk fields for more than 100 years, helping our ancestors live off the land.

Now, tractors great and small for all ages will be at the Billingford Mill on Sunday, July 22.

Youngsters will be able to bring their pedal tractors as the mill welcomes the David Brown Tractor Club to the Windmill.

The club was set up by Martin George in 1995 with the aim of bringing David Brown Tractor enthusiasts together.

The mill will be open from noon to 4pm for tours with tickets for adults priced at £3. The cost for seniors and children older than three is £2.

Light refreshments will be on offer from the resident Shepherd’s Hut, with entrance and parking on The Common free of charge.

The mill is also looking for volunteers who will be given a rare insight into how to be a miller, with training allowing them to be a miller or trainee mill while helping on open days.
