Ken Tyler (front) and fellow steam enthusiasts Alan Bateman and Mick Orton were showing off Gosberton Preservation Society’s splendid model traction engine at Springfields Country Fair over the flower parade weekend.

There were thousands of visitors over the weekend, although appalling weather on Sunday which meant tractors had to be used to haul coaches off muddy parking fields, had put many off attending.

There were around 75 stalls selling a wide variety of goods and a big display of rural crafts, such as old agricultural implements.
