West Yorkshire woodland uses heavy horses to work the land

A West Yorkshire woodland has reintroduced heavy horses to help manage the land.

The Farnley Tyas Estate near Huddersfield is using shire horses instead of machinery in parts of the forest.

Some of the 500 acres of woodland is said to date back to the reign of King Henry VIII.
