All Pilton World Conker Championship 2013

At the All Pilton World Conker Championships in The Reform Inn, Pilton, on Sunday 27th October, twenty eight intrepid conker players chose their weapons, drilled and strung them and then engaged in a battle to the death – of the conker that is.  The conkers were all provided by Tim Webster from a horsechestnut tree at Bradiford House, Bradiford.
