VIDEO: Looking Back at Hay Farm

Step back in time and see how farm work used to be carried out in years gone by.

The era of working horses is recalled this weekend at the Looking Back event at Hay Farm, on the Ford and Etal Estate. People are invited to look on, ask questions, and have a go as they learn about old working skills.

Visitors are able to watch horses working along with vintage tractors and then visit the indoor market which offers local food producers and crafters.

The event is also on tomorrow, Sunday October 8.
