HOW IT WAS DONE IN GRANDFATHER’S TIME

 

Welcome to this year’s Lanlivery working section.  As well as the usual displays of ploughing and cultivation, corn threshing, milling and bread-making, we have grown some corn on site and, weather permitting, hope to cut it with a binder.  So you should be able to see the various processes involved from the standing corn to the finished loaf. 

We are also lucky to have a vintage saw bench which will give you an idea of the work and skill involved in transforming a tree trunk into sawn timber.

Please feel free to ask the exhibitors any questions.  You will have to get their attention from the spectator’s side of the safety fencing that is there, not only for your safety, but to prevent the equipment operators from being distracted by spectators getting too close to the exhibits. 

Please do not attempt to enter any of these working section enclosures. 

 

HAVE AN ENJOYABLE WEEKEND !
