Thousands of people flocked to a stately home on Sunday for the Cambridgeshire County Show.
The event, held at Wimpole Hall, saw a whole host of agricultural displays including livestock and heavy machinery, and as well as plenty of locally-grown produce.
A spokesman for the organising committee said: “Organised by a small volunteer committee of past and present members of the Cambridgeshire Federation of Young Farmers’, the show aims to promote British food and farming, provide visitors with an insight into agriculture and the rural community and create an arena for young farmers to demonstrate their skills in a variety of competitions and activities.”
Displays included sheepdogs and falconry, along with the return of the Welsh Axemen. There was also the ever popular sheep show, which was performed throughout the day in the livestock area, where people were able to get close to various breeds.
Also present was the award winning NFU ‘Let’s Talk Farming’ Roadshow, with Annabelle the model dairy cow helping to celebrate the centenary of Cambridgeshire NFU, will also join the Show.
