Horse-drawn equipment plea.
Set up last year by horse driving enthusiasts, the organisation is looking for any unwanted equipment, such as shafts, carts or springs, no matter what condition it is in.
Members of the society plan to renovate the equipment for the benefit of the organisation, which is working with Sedgefield District Council and Durham County Council to clear disused rail tracks in the Shildon area for use by walkers, cyclists and horse- drawn vehicles.
Eventually, SCRT plans to organise trips along the tracks on the renovated horse- drawn vehicles and the long- term aim is to set up a museum to educate people about how horses were used in industry before the advent of the car.
SCRT secretary Richard Wigham said members are willing to pick up the equipment from farms. Anyone interested in donating equipment can contact Mr Wigham on (01388) 527737 or (07814) 324444.
