Vintage Machinery Section

The vintage tractor section of the Society has become increasingly popular in recent years. Besides having a common interest in the collection and restoration of vintage tractors, members now hold an annual road run, when around 70 tractors take part.

Vintage Section Activities

Road Run

The Road Run has become a regular fixture in the calendar and is usually held in July.

The Road Run follows a route of approximately 20 miles with a lunchtime stop at a pub or similar.

All proceeds are donated to local charitable causes – in 2009, the proceeds were donated to Cancer Research Usk Branch.
