Oswestry Show
Last weekend, I attended the 132nd Oswestry Show at the Park Hall Showground. With attendance estimated at 15,000 the Show is a great exhibition of North Shropshire’s agricultural industry and farming community. It has an extremely long and successful history, having held its first Show on 3rd October 1862; it continues to grow from strength to strength.
