Archant Norfolk 2016

A popular annual celebration of bygone farming techniques and machinery is returning to north Norfolk.

This year’s Ingworth Trosh will take place from 1pm on Sunday, September 17 in a field on Colby Long Lane, off the A140 between Aylsham and Cromer.

Demonstrations include Ransome threshing machines, threshing and bagging wheat as it used to be done in times past, along with other vintage tractors and ploughing bygones.

There will also be a fun dog show, birds of prey, other animal encounters and various stalls and refreshments.

All profits from the Trosh go towards the upkeep of the three medieval churches of Erpingham, Alby and Ingworth. In the case of St Mary’s in Erpingham, organisers said there is now the added burden of replacing recently-stolen roof lead.

Admission is £5, with children under 12 admitted free. Parking is free and dogs on leads are welcome.
