The turnover happened in the summer of 1985 at Tresidder Farm, St Buryan, Penzance, Cornwall.
The Y-reg Ford 5600 was being used to haul in conventional hay bales on a single axle Wheatley trailer.
The shots were sent in by William Bolitho who tells us that it was his uncle who was driving the tractor at the time.
The field had one steep bit and unfortunately it pulled the tractor and trailer over, William says the trailer was moved before the photos were taken.
