THE Westmorland show season got off to a super start as thousands embraced a new venue for the curtain raiser.

North Lonsdale Agricultural Show saw young and old descend on the Recreation Hall Fields, Urswick, near Ulverston, after a move from the former Bardsea Park site.

And the change was welcomed, with organisers hailing the day a ‘great success’. Vice chair Will Case, of Ulverston, said: “It’s been a lot of hard work from everyone on the organising committee but everything seems to have come together really nicely.

“I think everyone involved is pleased with how many people have turned out – it seems busier than ever, and it’s nice that the people of Urswick have received it so well.”

Standards were set high as the proud owners of cattle, sheep, horses, poultry and rabbits battled it out for rosettes and ribbons.

Alice’s Dog Show, set up last year in aid of Alice’s Escapes, the charity started by late Ulverston teenager Alice Pyne, also returned.

In the cattle ring, Andrew Dennison wowed with his two-and-a-half year old Holstein, Denmire Goldwyn Reba, who took the top prize. Mr Dennison, of Scales, said he was ‘very glad to have won’.

“There has been a really high quality standard of cattle this year which makes the win even better,” he said.

“I have been coming here for more years than I can remember and it’s the best turnout I have seen for quite a few.”

Judge Jimmy Capstick said the winner was an ‘excellent heifer’.

“She walked well with a good top line and had an excellent udder,” added the Whicham Valley judge.

Watching the cream of the crop in the arena was the Lord family and their friend Anne Brockbank, of Ulverston, who said: “We love the shows and follow them all over the country. The new venue is a nice setting – the field is much better as it is not on a hill anymore.

“It’s great to see young families here showing their animals as farming is still really important.”

Over in the sheep pens James Collinge and his step-daughter Jody Winder were celebrating after their aged ewe picked up the supreme champion sheep gong.

Mr Collinge, who lives in Lockerbie but originates from Askham, said: “She came second at the Great Yorkshire show this year and third at another, so I am really pleased with taking first here.

“I used to come here as a child and help a family with their cattle so I like to come back because I always see it as my local show.”

Visitors were treated to marquees full of local foodie goods and crafts and the youngsters were kept entertained by donkey rides, trampolines, candy floss and a bucking bronco.

Children also admired a tent full of rabbits, including Peter Faint and Alan Cargo’s furry red-eyed white Angora Petala stud, which won best in show.

I fail to see what this has to do with Westmorland; Ulverston is in Lancashire.

Elbean is 100% correct, Ulverston is in Lancashire. What the "cumbrians" fail to realise is that Cumbria is a 1970s administrative creation, not a historic County. The law which created it is very clear on what was abolished - administrative councils - end of, not Counties. It was said at the time that Lancashire, Westmorland etc, continue to exist. Only a few weeks back the Local Govt Minister reaffirmed that areas like Cumbria are no more than council areas and the Counties they administer STILL EXIST.

Being a mere admin area, Cumbria will disappear next time Whitehall fancies a shake up of local government but its constituent Counties will endure.

Incidentally NORTH LONSDALE as in Show is a direct reference to Lancashire since the County is divided into 6 Hundreds, the northernmost being LONSDALE. We are North, Lancaster, Carnforth, Morecambe being South.

So you are saying that Ulverston is in Cumbria indicated by it's postal addresses. Wikepedia says "From 1894 to 1974 the town constituted an urban district in the administrative county of Lancashire. It became a successor parish in the Cumbria district of South Lakeland under the Local Government Act 1972."

Royal Mail now publishes a gazetteer which places Ulverston in Lancashire! Check it out. Yes Ulverston was a UDC within administrative Lancashire, it isn't any longer, since 1974. Administrative arrangements are totally separate from Counties - as an example - Lancaster, our county town, would never have been classed as Lancashire because as a County Boro it was not run by Lancs CC. Instead it was in the historic County, not the administrative one. Much like Ulverston today.

I wrote to the Duchy of Lancaster who confirm that Furness is still within the County Palatine, local government arrangements notwithstanding. So, we are Lancashire!

I understand that this is correct - there was never an act of parliament which dissolved the counties of Westmorland and Cumberland and parts of Lancashire. There is an annual dinner in Coniston of the Real Lancashire Society. Would be nice to recognise Westmorland again

Correct fellsman. The 1972 Local Govt Act abolished and/or altered county councils but not the Counties themselves. There's massive identity crisis in the area. I was in a pub yesterday which boasts it is in "the heart of the Lake District" - its not even in the National Park! It also serves a "cumbrian breakfast", what will they call it when Cumbria is abolished! Naturally the breakfast was "traditional" - so if tradition is fine for a breakfast why isn't it also good for the traditional County - Lancashire??!!

Well, if you don't think that 1000 years of history matters then no! If you don't mind a largely ignorant media and couldn't care less bureaucrats dictating your identity - no! If you don't think the country should have a settled geography - no.

History matters, but we're talking about the present and in reality it doesn't make that much difference which county Ulverston is in.

I was born in Westmorland, now referred to as Cumbria by the media and bureaucrats, but I know I was born in Westmorland and that is my identity.

The physical geography of the area is changing slowly but constantly, so why shouldn't the human and bureaucratic change as well. Change isn't always bad.

Agreed fellsman, change is not always bad and bureaucratic change is inevitable, but that's my point. If there is advantage in Furness being run by Carlisle/Cumbria then that is 100% fine. But thepoint is that we need to be firmly anchored in our history and then progress forward, that I think was the meaning of the 1974 statement from the DoE which said that Cumbria is an administrative entity, which WILL NOT ALTER our historic counties. A statement recently repeated by Mr Pickles but one which the media in particular wilfully ignores, so damaging your Westmerian and my Lancastrian identity.

History is being rewritten on a daily basis, you will read that Stan Laurel is a cumbrian comedian (BBC) that Queen Victoria visited Cumbria, that HMS DReadnought was built in Cumbria etc etc. If we do place a value on history/heritage then lets have the real version, not the politically inspired, manufactured heritage of Cumbria.
