Surrey County Ploughing Match 2009 (20)
The Surrey County Ploughing Match & Country Fare, at Loseley Park, Compton, near Guildford, took place in near perfect autumn conditions. Not as hot as the previous year; still conditions, and hardly a cloud in the sky.

Some of the Ploughing Match rules:
(7b) Ploughing to commence at 10.30am and finish at 1.30pm (Split openings at 10.00am).
(7d) Width of furrow not to exceed 9 inches.
(7f) Competitors not finishing their plots in the allowed time shall not be eligible for ploughing prizes.

See the attached link for videos from the 2008 event, held in a field approximately three quarters of a mile to the north-west.

As well as being a competition, the ploughing match is something of a social occasion. Ploughmen compare notes, whilst the spectators get a chance to meet the horses.
