Lovely post. Thanks for the pics of both the shires and young Tom. Everyone looks to have had a good day.

yes Seabird its always well attended, and fortunately ...for us...most traffic heading to it comes from the A6 while we can generally drive in from the back lanes.

the show is a showcase for the college, so there are plenty of agricultural rural activities represented: thatching displays, walling, rare breeds, milking the sheep show etc. there are also various vintage motors, displays by the forces both military and civil, a huge range of equine events in the indoor arena, plus the other displays in various rings.

all kinds of stuff fishing, ferreting, honey bees, etc etc. more of a country type fair than a specific agricultural or game fair. Tom loves it

Brilliant post. Not enough photos though   Liked the close ups of the Hawks and Falcon.

some more great pics BB...deffo going to try to get there next year!!!


Looks great stuff Barraboy thanks for sharing the images
chicken feed

that sheep shearer get to alot of the shows and we never leave the show without watching one of his demo's he knows how to grab a audience.

Myerscough OD

Brill post and photos, must try and get there next time!  I remember going to the college 30 years ago when I was a student at Rodbaston (Staffordshire College of Ag), and okay, I was only a kid, but is it still as bitterly COLD?!?!?    From what I remember, we all came back with flu!


this is the first year for about four years its not been bright blue skies, but despite the grey it was still quite warm..we get summer oop north now too

Some excellent pics, I to have a soft spot for hounds.

I used to walk to two each year for several years, for one of the shire packs.
