Bringing in the corn harvest near Bourne

One of the most familiar sights of summer is that of the combine harvester making its annual rounds of the cornfields, cutting the wheat, oats and barley as the culmination of a productive season. These mighty machines can reap a fifty-acre field in a day, such as here to the north of Bourne with the village church at Morton on the horizon, but the farming cycle continues and soon the land will be under the plough preparing the soil for another growing year. This is one of many photographs of Bourne and the surrounding area to be found
in the Bourne Picture Archive.

 

 

PEEPS INTO THE PAST

The arrival of the motor car has transformed our roads which are now a mass of lines and signs but there was a time when even a solitary vehicle was a rare sight such as here in West Road before it became a residential area busy with traffic.
