Around thirty thousand people have spent the day soaking up the sights and sounds at one of the region's biggest agricultural shows, and for the first time, the Westmorland County Show had a royal visitor.
The Countess of Wessex was guest of honour at the show near Kendal.
As Ryan Dollard reports, the event came at the end of a summer which has been a pretty good one for Cumbria's farming industry:
The 214th Westmorland County show gets underway at Lane Farm in Kendal today and around 30,000 visitors are expected.
Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex is visiting the show, which is one of the largest and oldest in Cumbria.
Sections include cattle, sheep, goats, horses, pigs, heavy horses, alpacas, dogs and poultry, as well as marquees for The Women's Institute, Learning for Life, Crafts from Cumbria, local produce Food Hall, Rural Crafts and over 350 trade stands.
The organisers of the Wigtown Agricultural Show are determined to complete today's full events programme. The show jumping is due to start at 1pm with presentation of livestock trophies at 2pm. Last year the Princess Royal visited to celebrate the show's 200th year.
