I have literally no idea how to do this

As said above the smaller diameter of the wheel towards the centre is to allow the tyre to be pushed into and give enough room to pull it over the rim.
With the pretty cheap prices of tyre fitters these days, providing there is one close it just isn’t worth the hassle of doing yourself.

They are but this isn’t a JCB.

@Greenbeast if your struggling better to take the wheel off and do it on some clean concrete,also clean the tyre,nothing worse than a stone in the mud to puncture it again.
Yes take it off. I am not sure if you are showing putting the tyre on or taking it off. With the wheel off on the concrete you will be able to push the tyre into the rim which will give you more to work with. Is the bead fully broken?

My thoughts were that it would be a right basket to hold down and give it some with a lever............ but them I'm not much over 60kg!

This is tyre going back on, same as @milkloss, the only way I stop it moving as it is is the drop the whole machine a few inches. If it was loose on the ground I have no idea how I'd steady it.
I will have another go tomorrow by moving the tyre into the rim as suggest early on,

If its on the machine then you must have it off the ground, or it will never go on. If its on the concrete then put a wood block under the rim to get the thing in the air, stand up on the tyre and hit it with your club hammer.

you need to push the bead that still on the rim more to the centre, as the centre diameter ios smaller you get more bead to play with,

its a rights sh!t hole there get it off on some clean floor.

If you had the wheel off and washed clean you could lye it on the floor and use your feet too push the part of tyre shown by the green arrows down where the groove is for more room and lever the tyre on at same time

Back when I had a dairy herd, every year I had a slurry spreading gang come in to empty the slurry pit. 4 or 5 big rotor spreaders and a Poclain 360, the driver of which was the foreman and tyre changer. Every time that they came, they seemed to get a puncture in a spreader tyre. He would mend the puncture in the mud.

It's not surprising that the had so many punctures.
