Headcorn: The Weald of Kent Ploughing Match 2018 at Four Oaks Farm

By Angela Cole

Forget smartphones, Wi-Fi and SatNavs - age-old technology without the need for chargers will be part of a fiercely-fought spectacle this weekend.

The Weald of Kent Ploughing Match has been running for 70 years, with this year’s contest being held on Saturday, September 15.

It’s the largest ploughing match in the county and brings together the farming and rural community for a day of old fashioned pastimes. There will be classes for vintage, steam and horse ploughing - and even some modern machines.

Plus there will be a children’s gymkhana, dog displays and agility, clay pigeon shooting and displays by rural professionals with their hounds, birds of prey and more, alongside more than 80 trade stands.

Dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds will have a chance to win rosettes in a fun dog show.

The fun, family day out at Four Oaks Farm in Plumtree Road, Headcorn, is supported by Gullands Solicitors.
