The Kilnsey Show
The Kilnsey Show is a famous annual agricultural show which is held at the village of Kilnsey in the heart of Upper Wharfedale.
The event usually takes place on the Tuesday after the late August Bank Holiday weekend, with the main areha laid out in fields immediately adjacent to Kilnsey village, with the spectacular limestone cliffs of Kilnsey Crag providing an impressive backdrop (pictured above).
Besides the traditional displays of livestock (including cattle, sheep and goats) the event usually includes exhibitions of birds of prey, falconry, horse jumping, dry stone walling competitions (pictured above), sheep dog trials and herding etc.
One of the highlights of the day is the fell running race to the top of Kilnsey Crag, followed by horse and trap racing in the main arena (pictured above).
