    Men wrestle in the park in Cambourne.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Cornwall County Wrestling Championships. Crowds from all over the country - see grim and dour struggles in the "Cornish style"."

    Cambourne, Cornwall

    M/S crowd in a field surround the wrestlers, as a judge walks round watching the bouts. Some shots of wrestlers attempting throws, legs tangled, - two crash to the ground. Each pair of wrestlers have a man judging them. Two wrestlers lock together, arms around each others necks, looking fierce.

    Note: Wrestling in the open air - looks quirky.
