Honiton Agricultural Show - 4th August 2011
The Honiton Show was held at Honiton Showground, Stockers Farm, Gittisham, Honiton, Devon
EX14 3AW on 4th August. The weather started out drearily but brightened up during the morning & was improved by quite an extensive display of F & F tractors! The oldest was a 1933 Fordson water washer right up to several later Countys & a TW25.
Ralph Sharland had his usual impressive display of models & this formed the focus of the FFA activities.
Phil Burge was there with his lovely ex NZ 1958 Roadless 4WD Dexta, Doug Green & his 1961 Dexta, Edward Underdown's great original 1975 Ford 7000 and a local 1940 orange Standard that has been owned by 4 generations of the Coombe family.
Jim Hill's 1979 County 1174 won the classic restored class, a very well deserved award for a very serious restoration.
