The ancient ceremony of blessing the plough at the start of another farming year was observed at Binbrook back in January 1968.
The Rev C H Evison, Rector of Binbrook, can be seen between the plough shafts.
The ceremony is not so common these days, but the tradition will live on at East Barkwith, when a Plough Sunday Service will be held at Stamp’s Farm this Sunday at 3pm.
