The 683rd Lord Mayor's Show took place on Saturday 13 November, attracting more than half-a-million people to the pavements of the three-mile procession around the City of London.
The WCF has taken part in the parade for the past five years, with increasing support from rural and urban areas. Its aim has been to promote a better understanding of the economic importance of farming in the life of the nation and the close association of farming with the City of London.
This year the Grimme harvester - loaned by Cambridgeshire farmer Richard Lee of Highflyer Farm - became one of a long line of quality agricultural machinery called on by the WCF to support the event, including a combine, forage harvester, pea viner, 10-furrow plough and large tractor.
Support was also given by the Potato Council, which used the opportunity to reinforce the role of the potato in a healthy diet through its "Love Potatoes" message.
Master of the WCF, Follet Balch, senior warden Peter Faulkner and junior warden John Reynolds marched in front of the harvester on its journey around the Square Mile.
Balch said: "The UK agricultural industry is professional, innovative, thriving, dedicated and sustainable. Along with Grimme and the Potato Council, we are proud to take a lead in trying to communicate this to the general public. Potatoes are a staple of the British diet and it is great we can show how they are harvested with this impressive machine."
