  • Description

    Sheaf pitching record. Originally part of News in a Nutshell - international news stories in brief.

    Camborne, Cornwall.

    Quaint old fashioned custom. Various shots of men taking part in a hay bale tossing competition. They use pitch forks to hurl the hay bales over (what appears to be) rugby goal posts. The winner is the man who can throw the bale the highest.

    Various shots of bizarre game of football - all the players are on stilts!
