Thrandeston Pig Roast and Tractors, Thrandeston Little Green, Suffolk - 23rd June 2013

It's the annual pig-roasting thrash down on Thrandeston's Little Green. The weather's doing its traditional British Summer thing by being cold enough for coats and lashing rain periodically in short, but intense, bursts. The pig, bred in the farmhouse behind which it's being served, is excellent as usual, and for the second year there's a visit from a steam traction engine and Andrew's "tractor massive".
