Peter Love reports on what many regard as having been the best vintage sale of the year, held by HJ Pugh in Bristol, early last month.

Best vintage sale of the year

Best vintage sale of the year: The line-up of Fordsons at the recent HJ Pugh & Co sale was superb; this Standard N water-washer model sold for £3,000.

HJ Pugh & Co. headed to Netherton Wood Farm, Nailsea, Bristol, on Saturday, 6th November, and organised what many regard as having been the best vintage sale of the year.
