Suffolk Vintage Ploughing Society gets wheels turning for Ingham fields

Waiting for Video...

Vintage ploughing created a stunning sight at Ingham on Sunday when 70 ploughmen pitted their skills against each other in a ploughing event organised by Suffolk Vintage Ploughing Society.

Each ploughman had to work a plot 75 yards by 13 yards on fields owned by David Stennett in Ingham.

They were then judged on how well they ploughed the plot, their start and finish, the uniformity of the furrows and overall appearance of the whole plot.

This was the sixth annual event at Ingham and three of the competitors qualified to go through to the 2015 British finals.

Paul Rowe from the society said the fields were ideal for the event as they drained well. “The weather was kind to us and we had a good number of supporters who turned out to watch,” he added.

Vintage tractors included the big names of Fordsens Massey Fergusons and Nuffields which would have been built between 1955 and 1976.
