A YEAR AT SILLYWREA, BRITAIN’S ONLY HORSE-POWERED FARM A year in the life of the remarkable John Dodd who farms in the stunning landscape of the Allen Valley in Northumberland.
John is unique : instead of using tractors, he still relies on five giant Clydesdale horses to work the land. He has passed on his skills to his son-in-law David and is now teaching his grandson Richard. Together they battle the elements to make a living for themselves and preserve a rare and wonderful way of life.
