Organisers have praised the 'fantastic' turnout at the first Keswick Show since 2011. The event was held in a new location, next to the A66 at Braithwaite, on Bank Holiday Monday. Previous events were hit by flooding and then drainage works had to be carried out at the old site. Show Secretary Judith Hildreth said "we didn't really know what to expect with it being off since 2011 but the crowd here has really amazed us, how many people have turned out"
