Thousands of visitors crammed into Great Eccleston to celebrate the village's annual agricultural show.

People from all over Lancashire gathered for the popular two-day event at the showground.

Breeders of sheep, cattle and horses from all over the country were competing to be named best in show.

And there were plenty of other activities to keep the crowds entertained, including a display of modern and vintage tractors, show jumping and Cossack horsemen.

Lancashire's strongmen were also out in force for the tractor pulling show.

And farmers were showing off their cleverest livestock with a one man and his pig competition.

Stallholders were also out in force selling a variety of local produce and rural crafts.
