I use to live down there places include Dalham, Herringswell, Mildenhall, Newmarket and Red Lodge. I've got family still down there living near Newmarket.

Not far from my old house then at Red Lodge which in turn was 1 mile away from the New Holland test/prototype centre at Herringswell ;D  saw the first CASE puma at work in sept 04 and first T7000 in summer 05 ;)

I remember seeing the first super Q's and the 40 series Fords being tested as well as other brands being tested against Ford tractors.

Funnily enough the first prototype tractor I saw in the test centre was a Ford 4055 (physically the same as 4000) back in the early 70s when I visited the centre with my dad at the  age of 8 ;D  I can also remember prototype Ford7710 Q2s  and badgeless Ford 40s as well in fact I think one got nicked of farm!
