This plough was erected around August 2020, having been sourced from a farm in Moorsholm.
The plough carries the inscription Ord and Maddison, R.H. Ridging No.4
Ord and Maddison were based in Darlington but also had interests in limestone quarries in Weardale, the company existed from the 1850s until the 1950s
Ings Farm stood not far from the position of the plough, near the shops on what is now Warwick Road / Castle Road. The low garden walls on this estate are said to be constructed with stone from the farm
