The Institute holds it's Annual Picnic at the shortest place name in Britain.

The Forest of Ae also houses a delightful collection of slightly uninteresting Ploughs.

These ploughs were specifically arranged in the shape of the constellation DRAGO by Adam Corner and his strongman assistant Boron of Athens before they fell out.

The largest plough, nicknamed 'Willful' dissappeared during the picnic of 1991.

The best line of poetry ever written includes reference to agricultural machinery.Written by the Jesuit poet shaman Gerard Manley Hopkins in his poem 'The Windhover';

"No wonder of it: sheer plod makes plough down sillion
Shine,and blue-bleak embers,ah my dear,
Fall,gall themselves,and gash gold-vermilion"
