Ingworth Trosh weekend celebrates farming bygone days

There's a chance to catch a glimpse of a beet guzzler as farming fans see machinery old and new on Sunday at the popular annual Ingworth Trosh.

The event, which this year includes new attractions including a farmers' market and a dogs scurry, is held on fields belonging to local farmer Peter Spink.

Last year it attracted a record number of visitors, raising more than �3,500 for churches at Ingworth, Erpingham and Alby.

Two acres of spring long stalk barley will be threshed (or troshed), bagged and baled by an old fashioned drum, elevator and baler owned by well-know farming family the Withams.

Other attractions will include stalls and games, vintage tractors and farm machinery, ploughing demonstrations, a display of classic cars and motorbikes.

Also on show will be modern machines from a beet guzzler to a combine harvester.

Ingworth Trosh, which is signposted from the A140 Cromer to Aylsham Road, runs from 1pm onwards on September 11.
