Brails­ford Plough­ing Match

Derbyshire Life - - Countryside -

The 113th Brails­ford Plough­ing Match early in Oc­to­ber at­tracted crowds of vis­i­tors keen to cel­e­brate the coun­try­side and lo­cal farm­ing life. It took place at Os­mas­ton by kind per­mis­sion of Sir An­drew and Lady Walker-okeover. Amongst the many im­pres­sive com­peti­tors in the nu­mer­ous plough­ing com­pe­ti­tions, Robin Wor­thing­ton re­peated his suc­cess of last year in the Open Horse Plough­ing class, also tak­ing the tro­phy for the Best Mare or Pair of Mares. Mar­cus Rich­mond and Matt Stone took the ju­nior and se­nior open hedge­cut­ting hon­ours, while best lady hedge­cut­ter was He­len Archer. The num­ber of en­tries in all the classes and the range of trade stands was im­pres­sive – proof of an­other hugely suc­cess­ful and en­joy­able event.

The Plough Sun­day Ser­vice is at St Mar­tin’s, Os­mas­ton on 13th Jan­uary, the an­nual din­ner on 25th Jan­uary and next year’s plough­ing match is sched­uled for 2nd Oc­to­ber at Church Broughton, cour­tesy of Colin and Robert Prince.
