We are hoping to hold a Ploughing Match this year but we will be governed by the latest Government Guidelines.

Please watch this website for updates as and when the situation becomes clearer.

Next event

The next event is on the Saturday 25 September 2021 . As usual there will be the normal ploughing match in the morning and the Country Show in the afternoon with all your favorite exhibitions and demonstrations. Please find out further detail about the event, when they become available, here...


Ploughing is still the prime job in cultivation the earth and, despite this high technological and computerised age, the basic design of the plough remains largely unchanged since medieval times. There are several types of plough but all are based on the same principle. Find out more here...
