Vintage farm machinery, ploughing demonstrations, sheep shearing, produce and plant stalls, a birds of prey display and a farmers market are just some of the attractions featured in the annual Ingworth Trosh and fun dog show, which kicks off at 1pm on Sunday.

Visitors to the popular event will also have a chance to see a 1928 Marshall steam engine, which is returning to the village it first worked at more than sixty years ago.

Bought by trosh organiser Alan Witham’s grandfather Stephen in 1944, the seven horse power engine, which was used to power a threshing drum until the introduction of the combine harvester in the 1950s, is on loan from Strumpshaw Steam Museum.

Ingworth Trosh takes places at High Noon Road, off the A140 Aylsham to Cromer Road on Sunday from 1pm onwards. Refreshments will be available and entry is £5 (under 12s free), with proceeds going to the upkeep of Ingworth, Alby and Erpingham churches.
