Hollowell Show
Hollowell Show
The fields in the triangle of roads to the west of Hollowell are the venue for its annual steam rally and heavy horse show. Other non-steam vehicles are included. Looking down-slope there are several military vehicles on show with the heavy horse stables on the left. The first rally was held in 1986 to raise funds for the roof of Hollowell church ( SP6871 : Hollowell church ). Since then many local charities have benefited from funds raised.

The trees in the spinneys on the ridge in the distance run alongside the Welford Road (A5199) in SP6973 with the gap located at SP692734. The Hollowell reservoir sits hidden from view in the valley below the showground.
