Results for North Somerset Show 2016


Rhys Harlin proprietor of Darenth Valley Forge, Kent with his first place gate at this year’s North Somerset Show 2016

Results from this years first show are in already.

It was a good show with some excellent, quality forgework in the static classes, in particular Rhys Harlin’s gates and Sam Bailey’s Candle stick (seems ridiculous to call it such, as it was much a sculpture as something to give light). Looking forward to the next competition which is Devon County Show in two weeks.

The results for this years South of England Show are in use this link to view them South of England Show 2015 results Well done to Kevin Boys for winning Best in Show with his Archer (to be viewed at the Tower of London)

It was a tough Show for the SOE committe as it clashed with the Royal Three Counties Show at Malvern (also a NBCC round). In addition they had come back to the Ardingly Show ground after a years absence only to find the Show organisers had moved their previously agreed pitch at the last minute. However Mike, Merv and David still managed to put on a great show along with the usual friendly atmosphere. Check out their show website at http://www.southofenglandblacksmiths.org/
