The tractors, many more than 50 years old, set off from the Chequers pub in Fingest and several of them pulled trailers decorated with toys and Union flags to carry passengers.

They went through Stokenchurch and West Wycombe before stopping for lunch at St Katharine's in Parmoor, where guests were allowed to look around the 14th century building.

The tractors then continued on through the Culden Faw estate in Hambleden before finishing back at Fingest.



The event was organised by Gary Anderson, who led the convoy in his 1953 Ferguson TE20 tractor. Other models included John Deere, Ford and and David Brand.

Mr Anderson, who lives in Frieth, said: "We had a lot of very happy tractor drivers and families. Out of the 59 tractors only three dropped out, one with a puncture and two with fuel problems.

"Most of the route was off-road and I can't stress enough how beautiful the area is. It comes out on a run like this and I would encourage as many people as possible to get out for a walk.?

The event is thought to have raised more than £2,000.
