Visit to the Paul Rackham Collection

 

"The Rackham Collection, put together over a number of years by Norfolk farmer and businessman Paul Rackham, represents one of the most important historic collections of agricultural machinery in the UK with over 250 tractors and numerous implements. The tractors span the veteran, vintage and classic eras and include several early and unique models. It also contains probably the largest and most important collection of Ferguson tractors, implmenets and equipment in the world; the nucleus of which is the famous Hunday Ferguson Collection, formely owned by renowned cattle breeder, the late John Moffitt. John was also the founder of the former National Tractor Museum and two of the rarest tractors from the collection; the British Wallis and the Weeks Dungey 'New simplex', are now also owned by Paul Rackham".
