Chatsworth Country Fair on Saturday 03 September In Pictures (in the Rain)

IMG_4315

The thirty fifth Chatsworth Country Fair was opened yesterday in a Grand Ring Opening ceremony (Friday 02 Sept) by the Country Fair President, Jessica Ennis-Hill, the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and Wholefood Warrior, Eva Humphries

Our choice to attend today (Saturday 03 Sept) turned out to be a folly on our part with the weather being the overriding thing. The same view shared by everyone else involved and attending this day, I’m sure. Bet the wellie boot and umbrella sellers made a killing!

These pictures really convey a damp few hours spent at an organised grand event in the English countryside. They have their own charm however, because of the inclement weather. Enjoy viewing them:
