Members of the Central Southern Vintage Agricultural Society will be putting their vintage tractors and machinery to work this weekend (April 10 and 11) to help plough the Countryside Restoration Trust's Pierrepont Farm at Frensham.

Spring is a traditional time for the farmer to plough his fields, but the wet weather this year has delayed the work, so the Plough In is designed to help the farm catch up on the much needed work.

While the farm itself will not be open to the public, visitors are welcome to witness the work in progress during the event and watch a wide variety of vintage machinery at work.

Anyone wishing to go along is asked to make use of free parking (10am-5pm) at the nearby Rural Life Centre in Reeds Road, midway between Tilford and Frensham and three miles south of Farnham, and catch a tractor and trailer to the ploughing fields on the farm.

The museum's café will also be open to provide refreshments for participants and visitors.
