    • You are right, Laurie: people generally did much more physical work then than now, when even a lot of agricultural tasks are mechanised. Now people run / walk / go to gym to keep fit, whereas then that ‘fitness training’ was built into one’s work!

  1. I love seeing old farming equipment around, sadly, most rusting away. Nearby is a farm museum where it is interesting to see the implements and learn how they were used. The power was provided by muscle, not gas engine. I bet we’d be amazed at how quiet it was back then!


    • We have an agricultural museum in a nearby village too. I think you are right about how quiet it might have been – more likely to hear snatches of conversation than the thrumming of engines.
