    MOST PEOPLE USE FURNITURE VANS BUR CONTESTANTS IN A COMPETITION IN BRITAIN TODAY (SUNDAY) DREAMED UP SOME OF THE MOST UNUSUAL WAYS OF MOVING OLD HOUSEHOLD ITEMS.

    BALLOONS FLOATED IN TO WOBURN ABBEY WITH IT, PARACHUTISTS DROPPED IN CLUTCHING IT, SOME FURNITURE SAILED IN, ONE MAN PUSHED HIS FOR FIVE DAYS ON THE ROAD, AND ONE ITEM SIMPLY BOUNCED HOME.

    THE CONTESTANTS WERE ALL TRYING FOR A FIRS PRIZE OF GBP1,000 FOR THE MOST ORIGINAL WAY OF MOVING HOUSE. THERE WERE CONSOLATION PRIZES FOR THE LARGEST PIECE...AND FOR THE UGLIEST.

    THREE ENTRANTS CAME BY BALLOON ON HOT AIR AND TWO HYDROGEN-FILLED. AN ARMY OFFICER AND A FURNITURE RETAILER DROPPED IN BY PARACHUTE.

    THE ENTRANTS WERE JUDGE BY THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF BEFORE, WHO OWN THE STATELY HOME.

    IF SOME ITEM SUFFERED DAMAGE FROM THE STRANGE MEANS OF TRANSPORT IT DIDN'T MATER: ALL THE FURNITURE MADE UP A HUGE BONFIRE WHICH ENDED THE DAY.
