The 2017 show season drew to a close at the weekend as the 151st Alwinton Border Shepherds’ Show took place.
Bringing down the curtain on the summer for exhibitors and visitors, what is one of the largest shows in the Coquet Valley featured its usual mix of traditional favourites.
There were the fell races for young and old alike, Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling and the ever-popular terrier racing.
Dogs were well catered for as there was also the open dog show, the collie and terrier dog show, traditional sheep dog trials and the hound trail.
Entertainment came from Rothbury Highland Pipe Band, which marched from Alwinton village to the main ring, as well as in the music tent, while Coquet Lass, an Aveling & Porter steamroller built in 1899, also made an appearance.
Visitors could also peruse the packed craft tent, trade stands and, of course, the exhibit tents or enjoy the beer tent, food and refreshment stands.
