In September Cumbria welcomes the World Sheepdog Trials to the parkland at Lowther Castle, near Penrith, Cumbria. More than 200 dogs and their handlers from over 20 nations will compete. Many thousands of spectators are expected at this prestigious event and its associated Food & Country Festival.
A parade through Penrith is planned for Wednesday, 14th September, and the trials commence the following day. After four days of competition the grand final is scheduled for Sunday, September 18th. This beautiful location, on the eastern fringe of the Lake District, could hardly be bettered.
