Harry Ferguson

I had never been to Harry Ferguson's place before even though it's only about thirty five miles away, he was an amazing man.. a bronze memorial of himself stands just opposite the home farm and a few plaques documenting some of his achievements, I was on an errand to get a hydraulic seal for my tractor when I stumbled across it!
