Big Machines at Thornton Hall Country Park

Big Machines is back, for two days only, over the August bank holiday.  ​​​​​​With big machines on display, including tractors, bulldozers, 20+ ton machines plus lots more.  Have a walk around and get up close to see these big machines in all their glory.

The tractor competition will come to the finale on Monday* (around lunchtime), where Mick Wolfenden will judge and select a winner for 'most original', 'best restored' and the ultimate prize, 'best in show'.  This event is normally a sell-out, so if you have a little (or big) person who loves tractors, diggers, and excavators, then make sure you book your tickets now.
