Glapwell will become the site of the National British Ploughing Championships for 2022.
Around 230 of the best ploughmen and ploughwomen in the country will compete in different categories with many different types of plough and styles of ploughing on display on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 October.
There will be a total of fifteen different ploughing classes over the two days (detailed below) plus in six of these classes, the top 10 competitors from the first day will take part in a ‘Plough-Off Final’ on the Sunday to find the British Champion in each section. There will be over 300 ploughing plots ploughed over the two days!
There will be something for everyone alongside the ploughing competitions, from steam ploughing engines; vintage tractors and machinery displays; manufacturers and local dealers demonstrating their latest farm equipment; agricultural trade stands; shopping stalls and country crafts.
Bolsover TV (forward to 3.09) spoke to Sue Frith, Chief Executive of the Society of Ploughmen about what people can expect from the weekend.
