Here we have Ken Hornby leading the way through Cropton village. Ken is the main organizer of the Charity Tractor Runs and on this run they were raising money for the local Marie Curie Charity. The run took place on Sunday 29th June 2008 and there were just over 50 vintage tractors. The tractors met at Hen Flatts Farm, Cropton and went on a circular tour over the North Yorkshire Moors. Lunch was at the Blakey Pub.

Just as the tractors came through the village another car rally of mini cars was coming along the back lane at Cropton. For once there was a traffic jam in the village.

The tractors headed towards Rosedale down the steep Cropton Bank. The minis just had to wait until the tractors got through.
