In 1905 Richard Hornsby and Sons of Grantham invented the revolutionary caterpillar track, for use with Hornsby’s oil engines. These engines were developed by Yorkshireman Herbert Akroyd Stuart, from which compression-ignition principle the diesel engine evolved, being manufactured in Grantham from 8 July 1892. In 1909 Hornsby showed the British Army their invention, who were slightly bewildered by it, but took the idea no further, although they bought four caterpillar tractors in 1910 to tow artillery. Among the many traditions that Grantham has, two of the main ones are the Grantham Parade and the Grantham Festival, which take place every year.
