Wimpole Scything Festival

This year the scything event was held on the 22-23 June in the parkland to the south of the mansion. This setting has one of the best views across the Estate.

The Scything Festival reflects historic Wimpole estate management and is designed to be a fun and sociable weekend with several competitions. 

The Wimpole Countryside team and Estate Greenwood group were in attendance showcasing their traditional woodworking skills and demonstrating a variety of other historic rural crafts including blacksmithing.

The Scything Festival is one part of the Wimpole History Festival.
