The biggest one-day agricultural show in Norfolk lived up to its reputation today, attracting bumper crowds.
Aylsham Show organisers estimate that at least 18,000 people visited the event, in the grounds of the National Trust’s Blickling Park.
Families relaxed in warm sunshine, enjoying the annual north Norfolk celebration of its rural roots.
One highlight was a flypast over Blickling lake by the Hurricane, Lancaster and Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
The main ring saw displays including heavy horses, the Parachute Regiment Band, birds of prey, and The White Helmets motorcycle squad.
Elsewhere on the showground there was a gymkhana and a dog agility demonstration, plus pens of livestock, stalls and entertainments with a strong emphasis on locally-produced food, drink and crafts.
