Going bonkers for conkers at the 1974 World Championships | ITV News

For more than 50 years the World Conker Championship have been held in Northamptonshire.

The charity event has raised more than £400,000 for good causes over the years. Originally held in the village of Ashton near Oundle, the annual event now takes place in nearby Southwick.

The 2018 event is on Sunday 14 October but you can watch this vintage ITV News Anglia film from 1974 when Jack March was the World Conker Champion.
