A 15 year old school boy is invited to become part of an exciting adventure extending over three summers in
Yorkshire and Lancashire with touches of Durham and Northumberland thrown in along the way. Driving a steam driven, historical, agricultural tractor on iron wheels over vast distances each weekend to attend charity and historic rallies and eld days. Travelling over the Pennine Mountains and north Yorkshire moors to attend some of the greatest rallies and gala weekends ever experienced. He steered the tractor on some of the busiest roads in the north of England including many miles along the great north road now called the a1 highway, he guided his “charge” through many of the great industrial towns and cities of the north such as Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle,
Durham and Chester-le-street. Brian named his book “Shake Rattle and Roll” due to the discomfort of driving an iron monster on iron wheels with cross strakes.
