Today was show day – I love this day every year. Apart from the fact that we get trapped at the end of a single track lane and couldn’t possibly try to leave and go the opposite way to the hundreds of cars coming to park in the morning and leave in the afternoon.
Today was sunny – what a change from yesterday when it was cold and lashing with rain.
Now, I’ve got 50 photos recording the spirit of the Glendale show in Wooler. So this might be a long post! (It might be two, or even three posts.)
Through the gates across the lane and into the field.
Look how dry the river is today, you can also see how unstable the area is – would you believe “Natural England” will not let “English Nature” (both government bodies) consolidate this stretch and move the stones and gravel? Mad. Thanks goodness we now have the flood defences fitted to doors.
The Glendale Show – the largest in north Northumberland, is a real mix of fun fair, agricultural interests and retail therapy. Along with flowers, jam, very sexy bikes, washed and brushed sheep and various foods.
Start a sheep farm for £10.

Pretty things in the craft tent
Posh people with picnics.
Men who look like their dogs.
Clothes I can’t fit into atm…
Chicken handbags (!)
Pink and purple wellies.
Or green wellies if you prefer.
