Farm and showmen’s machinery from the last 150 years were put through their paces at the Museum of East Anglian Life during its two-day Steam and Craft event over the weekend.
Steam traction engines competed with tractors from the immediate post-war period for attention as the clock was turned back at the Abbott’s Hall site in Stowmarket.
There were also craftsmen and women showing off their skills – and selling their products to visitors at the museum.
The hot weather helped to bring out the crowds – especially on Sunday when families took advantage of the hot weather.
And for those keen to take the weight off their feet, there was even the opportunity to take rides around the extensive museum site.
