Archant

The rain didn’t dampen visitors spirits.

VISITORS flocked to this year’s Honiton Show in their thousands despite the soggy start to the popular one-day event.

This year marked the 121st anniversary of show, which showcases the best of local farming, crafts and rural skills.

There was plenty of entertainment on offer for the whole family with a death defying motorcycle display from Bolddog Lings Freestyle Team, vintage tractors and some canine magic from the Rockwood Dog display team and Cyril the Squirrel and his racing terriers.

The best of agriculture and farming were also on display with local farmers and breeders showcasing the best of their sheep, cattle, poultry and alpacas.
