A Roaring Success

This year’s Dentill Farming Festival attracted a massive turnout and went with a swing.

Visitors to Denton on Sunday, September 27th could hardly have missed the continuous roaring noises from Glebe Farm. More that 30 tractors of various vintages turned up and were put though their paces at ploughing, harrowing, rolling etc. They were watched by more than 500 spectators who were also entertained by a working thrashing (or should it be “throshin”?) machine, tractor rides and variety of other displays.

More pictures are available on an external, farming, Website.

Further roaring was generated by a very impressive flying display by the P51 Mustang based at Hardwick plus a fly-past by a Lancaster bomber. There is nothing to beat the sound of Merlin engines.

The food and drink stalls also did a roaring trade, the Blackhand cyder went down very well, and a good time was had by all.

The final finacial outcome is not yet known but it seems around £3,000 has been raised for charity.
