Allen ploughing engine repainted
Tuesday 8th May saw the unique 1913-built John Allen & Sons (Oxford) Ltd Ploughing Engine No. 67 emerge from Hollycombe's paint shop for a successful steam test after a complete repaint by Trustee Richard Hooker and team over the past few months.
Allens were originally agents for the major ploughing engine manufacturer John Fowler of Leeds, but later modified Fowler engines and built a few of their own. This engine is the only survivor of the make.
