It was the Chagford Show yesterday – in my view the best country show in Devon! Here are some pictures I took.
I walked in from Whiddon Farm and crossed the Teign at Mr. Drewe’s Pool.
There are lots of walks in the area
The National Trust and the Woodland Trust sponsored the main area to highlight our work at Fingle Woods
This is Dylan one of our Rangers in the Teign Valley on a shaving horse

Demonstrating old country woodland crafts
The Woodland Trust were at the show too

Judging the Dartmoor grey faced sheep
The show ground sits under the looming presence of Castle Drogo – under going its restoration – remember it is still open – so you can visit and see the restoration work
A great day out – Dartmoor at its best
