Fergie Photos

We purchased 'Fergie' when we bought the smallholding in 2008, along with a lot of items that every smallholder needs, from feed troughs to fence posts and wire etc. etc.

She was a grey 1953 Massey Ferguson TE20 model that had been bought second hand by previous owners of the smallholding some 15 years before we moved here. It was 'garaged' in a chicken shed, and when we bought a more up to date tractor, 'Fergie' was sold to a local enthusiast, Alcwyn who lovingly restored her.

We obtained some old photos and also the registration from the previous owners, and it turned out that Alcwyn, who used to work for Massey Ferguson and checked on historical records, had actually delivered this very tractor from new, to an address further up the coast in mid Wales.

Alcwyn was a keen tractor and steam engine enthusiast, and 'Fergie' was taken on many a tractor run and to various shows.
