Description

The image shows a miscellaneous collection of tools, including brushes, plastering tools, garden forks, spades, shovels and hoes. These formed part of a lot at the auction of Gordon Sutcliffe's property. The forks were used for both gardening and spreading muck before Gordon and his wife Dorothy acquired a muck spreader. They would have to empty barrowfuls of muck into piles on the fields and then spread it out with the muck fork.
Auction. Following Gordon's death a public auction of his large collection including engineering, motor and farming artefacts was held on his small holding at Blackshaw Head overlooking Colden. It was held on 8th September 2007 and the auctioneers were Silverwoods of Clitheroe. People came from far and wide and many local people attended.
