The last Wednesday in August is the day for Reeth agricultural show, set in the picturesque surroundings of Swaledale, this traditional event showcases competition entries as diverse as vintage tractors, home-made/grown produce, livestock and walking sticks….the winning giant cabbage was a sight to behold !

vintage tractor winner…
