This year marked the 40th anniversary of Lambeth Country Show so being on my doorstep I scooted down to Brockwell Park to check out the Sheep on show..

Peter Titley, the President of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (pictured with a microphone and wearing a hat) was commentating throughout the day and provided the audience with some fascinating insight into the different breeds, their origins and the various products made from their wool, horns and meat.

Maurice Duce was judging the sheep from a number of city farms including Capel Manor Farm, Spitalfield City Farm, Vauxhall City Farm and Woodlands Farm Trust with a good mix of young and older volunteer handlers who were clearly enjoying their day in the sun.

The supreme champion of the interbreed class was a yearling Dorset Ewe, bred on the Woodlands Farm Trust in Greenwich, with a very happy young handler, Shauna who only started volunteering at Woodlands Farm Trust back in March of this year and is currently applying for a place at Veterinary College.
