Vintage Ploughs

Robert Haigh organised a vintage tractor ploughing contest in a field off Grainins Syke on May 3rd. The competitors were treated to a glorious day of sunshine in a field which was considerably more sheltered than the nearby open field. Ploughmen travelled large distances to take part. Ron Craven from Huddersfield said he had been a miner and had taken up ploughing after restoring his vintage tractor following his retirement. He said it is a very sociable hobby which his wife enjoys as much as he does.

Robert unfortunately did not have such a good day, having had problems all along with the plough clogging up.
