We live in Teesdale but olso only a few miles from Weardale so are spoilt for choice with excellent country shows, like Wolsingham, Stanhope and Bowes.

But Eggleston is our local show and right next to were my shoot is, so loads of freinds and family attend and its right good crack.

Its a very old fasioned traditional affair with Brass bands, All Farm animals and machinery, Fur and Feather, Fruit, veg, flowers and traditional skills all on show, there was even a market tent where you could purchase local produce and the best bit, it stayed dry  

Here are just a few of the pics i took.











































There was loads of other things i wish i had taken pics of, the Veg and flowers were some of the best i have seen.

It looks as though it was a good day out
Were all the cattle just tethered like that?

Yes - I liked the way they were tied to the main tent poles.  Good job nothing spooked them
