We went to the Southern Agricultural Show this afternoon, the sun was shining and it was absolutely jammed packed with people, stalls, animal exhibitions and kids rides and stuff.

I have added nine images which will hopefully give you a feel for all the fun that was going on in Great Meadow, Castletown, which according to the news could be the last year it is held down there due to the lease expiring.

One gripe for us is that all cars were chaperoned into a field opposite Great Meadow where there were literally thousands of cars, however when we came to leave the field it took us 1hr and 10mins to get onto the public highway due to the lack of any traffic management, there were some very unhappy motorists stuck in that field believe me!

Image No 1 shows a traditional Horse and Trap, Image No 2 shows an Indigenous Manx Loaghtan Sheep. Image No 3 depicts a traditional belt driven Bailing Machine, Image No 4 Dog Agility, Image No 5 Castletown Metropolitan Brass Band and image No 6 Daddy can i have a drink of Milk please!! Image No 7 A Shire Horse and colorful plumage, Image No 8 Short legged cows!, Image No 9 A beautifully turned out rider and horse being judged.

Scarlett Point Tower is situated on the southwest coast of the Isle of Man, in Castletown. The high visibility orange building was formerly used a coastguard look out tower until the early 1970’s and was then decommissioned.

The Tower has been used by radio hams for the last few years however during World War 2, Scarlett Point was used as a radar station.

You can also see to the back right of the image the ‘Herring Tower’ which is situated on Langness Peninsula.

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 40mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
