Ploughing Match

Entrants take part in the annual ploughing match near the North Yorkshire village of Staithes. The event which is held each year on fields above the North Sea coastline helps to raise funds for local charities and brings together farmers and ploughing experts who compete in various categories during the competition. Many still use vintage tractor and plough set-ups and the friendly rivalry and banter among the entrants creates a unique atmosphere as traditional farming skills are kept alive.
