Now, a convoy of more than 50 tractors, both vintage and new, has raised £3,000 for charity.

The parade set off from St George's Hall Complex, Methwold, to raised funds for MacMillan Cancer Support Group.

The route saw the parade go through Methwold Hythe, passing Wissey Sugar Beet Factory, into West Dereham before stopping at Church Farm Rare Breeds Centre in Stow Bardolph.

Leader of Downham Market Macmillan support team, Sue Sampson, picked the winner of the best dressed tractor during the stop.
