Steam Plough Club, Pant-y-Cae, Clyro, Herefordshire HR3 6JU

Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th October 2018

A Great Challenge steam ploughing match is to be held over the weekend 13th and 14th October.  The venue is Austrey, near Atherstone, Warwickshire, CV9 3ED, by kind permission of William Corbett Farms Ltd.  The Society of Ploughmen has kindly invited the Club to join with them and the Challenge will be taking place alongside the 2018 British National Ploughing Championships & Country Festival.  The opportunity to open the event to the public rather than members only is something the Club can do by partnering with the Society who are already familiar with the infrastructure and supporting facilities required.

To date we hope to run 12 sets in the competition, see the provisional list below which may be subject to changes.
