Allonby Charity Ploughing Match.

Recommended Posts

On Sunday we had the above event. Though only meant to be a one off, this was the 14th year. Mainly started to raise money for the Royal Lifeboat Institute, after to local men lost their lives in the Solway, it has expanded slightly to have other attractions and raise money for a different charity each year. All money raised stays in Cumbria.

 

 Below are a few photo's I managed to find time to take.

 

These Motorcycles belong to a friend of mine who has 22 with not one made after 1938.

These vintage bicycles belong to another friend who has a vast collection.

These are my C-81, C-125 and Sears/Roper GT16. The C-121 Black Horse was ploughing, all though briefly as the lift linkage broke.

Some ploughing.

I do know this ploughman came second in his class.

The Solway Firth in the back ground. The Scottish hills can be faintly seen in the distance.

This ploughman is measuring across his furrows. If he was 6" out he would alter his plough an inch. Three furrows up the plot and three down the width would be corrected.

The eagle eyed will notice how the plough is set. That is so it would clear the ground after the lift linkage broke.
