On Sunday evening we dropped the caravan off at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate. It’s the first time we’ve planned to stay over in the caravan, and we were amazed to find out how busy the showground was when the show itself didn’t start until Tuesday. Exhibitors had been arriving since Friday and there was a temporary city of caravans, tents, horseboxes and livestock trailers.

Here’s the vehicle for a team of Clydesdales. That’s temporary stabling in the background, but I don’t think the Clydesdales will be staying there. They’re so big, they need something rather more solid.
