It's Plough Monday and David welcomes a group of clergy to Brookfield. Bert eagerly introduces David to Rachel the new archdeacon, who shows a keen interest in farming and Brookfield.

Nigel welcomes Kathy back to Lower Loxley but the atmosphere is very strained. After discussing the rotas, Elizabeth suggests Kathy goes early. Kathy's glad to, but not before pointing out that she'd rather Elizabeth didn't discuss her business with the family. Elizabeth apologies but realises just how difficult her relationship with Kathy has become.

Pip's dismayed that Adam has ploughed up Quarry Bank. It's where she did her skylark survey last May, and it's supposed to be set-aside. David tries to explain that Adam had no choice - he was just obeying Matt's orders - but Pip's disgusted that the estate don't appear to know about the wildlife that's trying to survive on their land. Pip points out the advantages of birds; she knows her stuff but David reminds her what farming's all about. Pip's incensed. Matt's a developer not a farmer and what he's done is wrong. She's going to phone him - he had no right to plough up the field.
