Royal Welsh Agricultural Show Ground, Llanelwedd
Royal Welsh Agricultural Show Ground, Llanelwedd
The main entrance to the Royal Welsh show ground in Llanelwedd. The Royal Welsh Agricultural Show was first held in Aberystwyth in 1904 and the show was held in various locations over the next 55 years. In 1962 it was decided to purchase a permanent location for the show because of rising costs, and in 1963 the first show was held at the new permanent ground in Llanelwedd, near Builth Wells, and has been held there every year apart from 2001 when the show was cancelled due to the Foot and Mouth outbreak.
