Enlarge the photo to see large, ripe horse chestnuts, just waiting for a slight breeze to send them to the ground and burst open.
In the afternoon there was a display of horse implements, many of which had be relegated to the scrapyard and now rescued and carefully restored by these enthusiasts. This is a single horse grubber (horse hoe).
