England’s premier agricultural show opened it’s gates today for what was supposed to be the start of three days of showcasing the best in British farming and the countryside. However due to heavy rain which caused chaos with the parking areas and the showground turning the normally grassed areas into a muddy quagmire the decision was made by organisers to cancel the show after just one day.
The event, which normally attracts over 130,000 visitors each year was the 154th show and displays the cream of the country’s livestock and offers numerous displays and events and gives the chance to see many different countryside activities.
