Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Hope Show


August Bank holiday Monday, means Hope Sheepdog Trials and Agricultural Show. (I’ve shown you a shot of the Hope Valley before) Hope Show, as it more usually known, is a traditional sort of agricultural event, cattle,sheep, horses, dogs, tractors, beer, burgers and ice cream, all you need for a grand day out.

I nipped in and out of the show this morning, I’m not one for lingering on the Peak District roads on a bank holiday, they’re too busy for my liking.

Plenty of photos to play with later in the week, but as a taster; fine looking animals

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. I can see this will be a good week to visit. Fine, woolly sheep and handsome horses. And you mentioned beer?

  2. You didn’t mention what the weather was like! xx

  3. hi mrs updd – i love the coloured and the bay – any more pics of the neddies?
    love sara. xxx

  4. I’ve never yet been to Hope Show largely because it’s on Bank Holiday Monday and the Hope Valley is a good place not to be on Bank Holiday weekends! It looks the kind of traditional show I’d enjoy so maybe next year I’ll get the train instead of taking the car.
