The National Vintage Tractor Road Run
of 2018 will go down as the most
spectacular in the history of this
long running event. Perfect
organisation, an excellent venue,
great roads and amazing views ensured
the 2018 run will be hard to match.
The run was hosted by the Teme Valley
Vintage Club aided by other
Radnorshire and Border tractor clubs.
The start was from Bensons Factory
Yard in Knighton which was formerly
the home of County Tractors. As a
result, over 50 County tractors
arrived to take part.
The run took the participants on a
scenic route up to Offas Dyke, the
ancient boundary between England and
Wales, where the most breathtaking
views were to be seen. The descent
then offered wonderful scenery all the
way down into the river valley before
the tractors finally arrived back at
Bensons Yard is also the home of
Clayton Engineering, the last
spiritual home of the County tractor.
Clayton still build lifeboat launching
vehicles for the RNLI and we were
given a unique guided tour of the
works for this production.
