The beautiful sunshine came out for us yesterday to make a trip to our first country fair of the year yesterday.
Sadly the buzzy atmosphere that there used to be at Abby Mills is no more with a real lack of stalls. It’s such a shame and would be great if some kind of regeneration project could be started there as its such a great area.
That said the boys had fun picking themselves a toy from one of the stalls, there are plenty of good restaurants to chose from and popping into see the water mill working is always great fun.
We made our way into the grounds where people were picnicking and playing pooh sticks from the many bridges the grounds home.
The fair itself is a real mixture of the traditional attractions that I love such as coconut shys, willow weaving, bee keeping, magicians and many more with the big rides that the older ones love.
The highlight for the youngest two was the medieval area where they got to watch the Knights complete in full armour. Number four said it was the best thing he had ever seen!
