Dalwood Country Fair


The wind and the rain could not dampen the medieval spirit of the day.

The children’s Fancy Dress and procession was judged by Rev. Anne Mills and Nick Goodman, Axminster Town Crier. They were led in style onto the Fair Field by the Hurdy Gurdy Man. Entering a field that was bedecked with awnings decorated in the medieval theme. Ladies, knights, maidens, and kings were all to be seen.

The Equestrian display was enjoyed as was the Fun dog show. Food and drink was plentiful A good time, despite the weather was had by all.

A huge THANK YOU goes to ALL who helped and supported the Fair, before during and after Fair Day. The unsung heroes who put the Fair together, then dismantle it and all those who man the many stalls that offer so much fun to our visitors.

THANK YOU all, it would not happen without you. A special thanks goes to Martin Farenden, who allows his field to become the spectacle that is Dalwood County Fair. Thank YOU Martin
