Please note there may be one or two sheep in this blog.
With 103 sheep dotted through the small Dales town of Sedbergh for its first ever Sheepfest taking photos of sheep became addictive. Somewhere among them there may be a small Frickel pig called Lorry. Can you spot him?
There were magnificent sheep in shop windows.
Sheep lest we forget.
The Baaaaaa-rd of Sedbergh (AW’s own work….isn’t he great?).
Local historian sheep.
Estate Agent sheep.
(N)ew(e) – born sheep (the lady in this shop is expecting a baby any day, this was a lovely touch).
Poorly sheep (in chemist’s window…where else?!)
Twin-town Slovenian sheep.
Farfield Mill sheep.
Bell ringing sheep.
…the vicar even looked a bit woolly …
I know this is impossible but incase you are a little sheep-ed out. Pride of place at the top of the aisle was this beautiful coat of many colours.
Made of small woven strips
created by local school children with the help of community artist Donna Campbell the coat is a work of art. It was lovely eavesdropping on children proudly showing-off their strips to parents and grand-parents.
I am sorry that I couldn’t capture a picture of every sheep – some were let down by my inadequacies as a photographer – but I think even this little selection will give some idea of how hard the people of Sedbergh had worked to make Sheepfest such great fun. It was a real tribute to their town and them.
A super day out!
Until next we meet, Moke x
PS Did you spot him?
