The Appleby Horse Fair is an annual gathering for Gypsy, Romany and the travelling communities. The event has existed under the protection of a charter granted by James II since 1685 and it remains one of the key meeting points for these communities. Around 10,000 travellers are expected to attend the week long event who traditionally come to buy and sell horses.
