VIDEO AND PICTURES: The 187th Bakewell Show gets underway

Bakewell Show 2017 got underway today and despite the persistent rain, there was still plenty for visitors to enjoy.

From cookery demonstrations with ‘Beer Chef’ Richard Fox, to the dog show, and the usual livestock classes, Bakewell still put on a show, even though the recent wet weather meant much of the ground was soggy and muddy.
