spotlight on...The Surrey County Ploughing Match
Lane End Farm, Lawbrook Lane, Gomshall Sunday 29 September, 9am–1pm
Step back in time at The Surrey County Ploughing Match taking place this year at Lane End Farm in Gomshall. Bringing together around 70 ploughmen and women, along with their tractors, ploughs and heavy horses, this event creates a wonderful rural spectacle across 60 acres of farmland. A qualifier for the British National Ploughing Championships, the match will start at 9am with the launch of a rocket and includes classes for conventional and vintage tractors, hand ploughs and fabulous horses (see image left). Competition is fierce, with judges awarding marks for skill and accuracy.
Entry and parking is free and refreshments will be available.
