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

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
