An autumnal rural spectacle involving vintage tractors and heavy horses has been postponed due to the wet weather expected this weekend.
The Norfolk Farm Machinery Club's (Normac's) biennial ploughing match was due to take place on Sunday, October 27, in a field near Scoulton, between Watton and Hingham.
More than 50 ploughmen from across the region were expecting to compete at the event, which was set to include vintage farm machinery classes and some heavy horse competitions.
But with ground conditions likely to be unworkable, the event will now be re-organised for a later date.
Normac county co-ordinator Chris Thomas said: "I have to report that the Normac ploughing match at Scoulton has been postponed, due to the impending bad weather. It will be re-scheduled for the New Year, but as yet I haven't got a venue or a date."
