Scores of tractors have vacated Island fields and taken to the roads in aid of

This year, as many as forty tractors – vintage and modern – joined the Isle of
Wight tractor ride out.

View the full gallery of tractors that have taken part:

The convoy started its stately progress at the Eight Bells in Carisbrooke at
10.30 am on December 27, then wound its way through West Wight country
lanes – taking in Porchfield, Calbourne, Gatcombe and Brook – before finally
ending its journey at Whale Chine.

So, if you happened to have got stuck behind a convoy of tractors in West
Wight on Thursday, please bear in mind that it was all in aid of a good cause. This year’s charities being supported by the tractor ride out are the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and the Alzheimer’s Cafe in Newport.
