Isle of Wight Memorial Ploughing Match


Isle of Wight Memorial Ploughing Match - Sun 12 April 2015

Attended by not far short of 100 ploughmen and women, the Isle of Wight Memorial Ploughing Match takes place at New Wolverton Farm, Shorwell on Sunday 12 April 2015 between 9.30am to 4.30pm. Featuring horse drawn plough's, vintage tractors and their modern equivalents, entry is free of charge. It makes for a lovely day out for the family and a rare opportunity to learn about the Isle of Wight's agricultural past...and present.

In 2012 Red Funnel sent its Myisleofwight.com team along to find out more about the art of ploughing.
