It was wet and it was mucky, but for the 200,550 people who attended the National Ploughing Championships in 2023, the mood was jubilant.

But there was also novel events such as Macra breaking a Guinness world record for throwing the most amount of wellingtons.

Our photography team was around the site to capture all the excitement of the three days.
