World Champion Herdwick
The Fell Dales Association Eskdale Show is widely recognised as "The" show for Herdwick sheep and is considered by many to be the home of Herdwicks. As a result it is fitting that the show awards the status of World Champion Herdwick and in 2016 the award was introduced, with a trophy sponsored by The National Trust.
The best Herdwicks from different exhibtiors competed for the title and there were fantastic examples of the breed on display.
The 2019 title was awarded to Anthony Hartley - well done Anthony!
