Farmer John Gullett has spent 12 months restoring a piece of the past.

The 75-year-old from Shelf bought the 1968 International Harvester 444 tractor in 1975 and used it around the farm for many years.

John says International tractors were originally made in the former Jowett car factory in Idle.

After it became vandalised, John set about the task of restoring the tractor to its former glory, and recently completed his quest.

He says he is now considering showing it at local shows and rallies.
