This is a popular event in our Society calendar and is regularly contested by around 70 local ploughing champions. There are classes for conventional, reversible and horse-drawn ploughs, as well as expanding classes for vintage tractors and ploughs. The Champion of the day qualifies to go forward to the National Ploughing Championships.
Aside from the competitions, the event has something for everyone with an interest in the countryside. Farming both old and is brought to life in unique working demonstrations. The magnificent shire horses decorated with ornate brass and leather harness will pull a horse drawn plough, and steam ploughing.
