Old Hay Rake
Old Hay Rake
This old hay rake is parked outside the Visitor Centre SJ9948 : Car Park and Visitor Centre in Consall Nature Park. Originally these machines were horse-drawn and pulled the hay into rows (or wind-rows). I remember seeing one of these in action, when I was a child growing up in Devon, although that one had been converted to be towable behind a tractor. A colloquial name for them, at least in Devon, was 'buck-rake'.
