Rural traditions to star in fundraising Ingworth Trosh show
09:00 11 September 2014
Rural farming traditions will be on show at a fundraising event for three churches this weekend.
The annual Ingworth Trosh will be happening between Cromer and Aylsham on Sunday September 14 from 1pm.
Now in its 10th year the trosh, which attracts hundreds of people, is raising money for three medieval churches in Alby, Erpingham and Ingworth all of which need repair work.
It raises between £5,000 and £6,000 each year for the historic buildings.
The event provides the perfect opportunity for owners of vintage farm machinery to bring their equipment along to work the land as it used to be done from the 1930s to the 1970s.
The event is also popular with non-farming visitors, who this year will see a unique sight of three threshing drums working together.
These include a 1930s John Deere pegg drum thought to be the only one in Britain, as well as another drum powered by a Foster steam engine.
Modern farm equipment will also be on display alongside the bygones, with ploughing and sheep shearing demonstrations taking place.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy a farmers’ market and other stalls, teas, cakes as well as a fun dog show and agility competition.
Gates open at 1pm and the entrance fee is £5 per person. It is free for children under 14.
Ample free car parking is provided.
Visitors should follow signs from the A140 between Aylsham and Cromer. Alternatively follow the post code NR11 7EX.
