A day at the Melplash Show, Thursday 22nd August 2019

It’s been a while since I’ve posted to this blog. Let's see if I can remember how to do this...

Here’s 23 photos from the last year’s Melplash Show – a great day out...

The Melplash Show is a one-day country show that takes place on the third Thursday in August at the Melplash Showground near West Bay in Dorset.

Due to mysterious forces not yet fully understood, it is always blessed with good weather.
