Crowds braved the unsettled weather to make Camelford Show, a traditional one-day celebration of all things agricultural, a major success.

Now in its 108th year, organisers laid on a wealth of events at Halwill Barton from popular cattle and sheep classes to circus skills and stunt demonstrations.

The show – which is hosted by the Sanders family, is close to the coast, and boasts impressive views – attracts holidaymakers every year.

And despite the unpredictable conditions, this year proved no different as thousands of visitors mingled among the animals, stalls and attraction.

Stock entries were up on previous years with the supreme show champion title being taken by Daisy – a Holstein owned by Alec Bowden from Constantine, near Falmouth.

Four-year-old Harry Edwards-Brady from Hatherleigh, in West Devon, was named as reserve show champion.

Meanwhile, 11-year-old Jessica Hugo, from Lanivet near Bodmin, took the title of champion dairy handler with her Rockset Herd Holstein Rachel.

The main ring entertainment this year was provided by the Jez Avery stunt team, a display by the Cornwall Field Gundogs and a local horse dressage demonstration.
