History of the Lincolnshire Show

The Lincolnshire Show's rich history began in 1869, since then it has been promoting food, farming, and the countryside. Today it showcases a variety of produce, from arts and crafts, food, and also entertainment for the whole family with in-flight displays from the Red Arrows, show jumping and even chainsaw carving!

Lincolnshire Cattle

Lincolnshire Long-Haired Sheep sometimes called the Lincoln Long Wool has the heaviest and coarsest fleece, although it has considerable luster. The official breed association was established in 1892 to register the long wool pedigrees. The Lincoln Long Wool is also now listed as a 'vulnerable' rare breed.
