Ploughing with Shire Horses

Ploughing with Shire Horses

The Archive believed this to be possibly in the Esk Valley, but welcomes further details. Did you know the ploughman? William Castle has told us: ”In Gordon Clitheroe’s book ‘Ryedale’ he has this picture as Edgar Dowson ploughing near Hutton-le -Hole, probably just before the 2nd World War. The Beck Isle Museum in Pickering (where Mr Clitheroe is Curator) also has this picture, possibly the original. Colin Grice has a further update: ”It is very likely just east of the road between Hutton-le-Hole and Keldholme – looking towards Kirkbymoorside (hidden). The Dowsons lived at Halfway House just up the road.”
