Vintage tractor trail

The county will once again rumble to the sound of a convoy of vintage tractors wending its way around our rural lanes on Sunday 7 April. David Spruce of the Bridgnorth Vintage Machinery Club says, “We’ve been supporting the Midlands Air Ambulance for many years, raising many thousands of pounds. As I work for them as well, I can tell you that every penny we raise is put to good use. This year we are once again being sponsored by Furrows Ford in Shrewsbury.”

David is hoping that this year’s event will not experience the same weather conditions they faced last year, when the tractors were up against a heavy snowfall.

The proposed route will see the stately vehicles leave Apley Farm Shop at 10am and head through Astol, Beckbury, Badger, Stapleford, Worfield, High Grosvenor and to Bridgnorth via the A458, via Stanmore and Ludlow Road into High Town for around 12.30pm. In the afternoon, drivers will head from Low Town over the bridge and along the A442 to Telford, turning off at Green Gates towards Stockton and the Apley Farm Shop.
