Ploughing Experience

£175 per person (lunch included)

Join our very own World champion ploughman Jim Elliott for a day of toil and learn the basics of ploughing a field with heavy horses. Suitable for beginners.

Thank you to the Beamish staff for a fantastic day, we bought my husband the ploughing experience as a Christmas present and I think it was probably the most successful gift ever! He had a fantastic, interesting day and enjoyed every minute.
