A sunny morning across the Fens held the perfect setting for the postponed Prickwillow Ploughing Match.
The event took place on Sunday (October 27) at land on the Prickwillow to Isleham Road.
Tractors went in competition with each other as families could watch and enjoy refreshments.
Downpours and high winds had cancelled the popular match over the weekend of the ploughing festival.
Organisers posted on Facebook: "An enjoyable day was had by all, with many thanks going to the land owner for the use of the fields and all the organizers well done."
