Once again the Avebury & District Ploughing Association will be holding its annual ploughing match in September.
The event has a history that stretches back more than a century and traditionally sees the very best local ploughmen pitted against each other. Although the venue has yet to be decided, the date has been set for Saturday 29 September.
There will be classes for vintage, conventional and reversible ploughing open to ploughmen in regular full time employment within a 15-mile catchment area of from Avebury, as well as trade classes open to employees of agricultural engineering firms in North Wiltshire.
More details of the event and venue, as well as entry forms will shortly be posted at www.aveburyploughingassociation.co.uk.
