The Royal Bath and West Show celebrates its 150th Show today. It's unique in the South West as it was the only big show to move about before settling in one place in the mid sixties. Its gatherings were held from South Wales to Plymouth.
The first show was back in 1852 but as our Somerset correspondent David Woodland reports, its remit has always been the same - to bring farmers together and to show 'townies' what goes on down on the farm!
