More Poldark

A good article today about scything on the BBC website following on from Aidan Turner’s scything debut on Poldark the other week. It’s great when this kind of thing sparks interest in a traditional skill and journalists make the effort to follow it up by researching the subject.

Pictured is Simon Damant, a National Trust ranger on the Wimpole Estate and current British scythe champion.
