Teams of heavy horses will be turning back time on Sunday 30th September at the Gressenhall Museum of rural life near Dereham in Norfolk.

‘Horse Power’ will see the museum’s own team of Suffolk horses working together with members of the Eastern Counties Heavy Horse Association to carry out all the seasonal tasks on the farm. These include ploughing, harrowing and muck spreading.

Amont the teams of horses expected to be there will be Suffolks, Clydesdales, Ardennes and working Cobs.

Horse Power! is part of a new series of events, Days with a Difference, designed to focus on traditional aspects of rural life or occasions for celebration.
