Studs & Crooks. The hidden history of Kilnsey Show. By Victoria Benn with Jamie Roberts.
Studs & Crooks, is a new 224-page colour hardback book by Threshfield author Victoria Benn. The book uncovers the hitherto hidden history of this iconic show, which has grown from humble beginnings in 1897 to become one of the biggest one-day agricultural shows in the country.
The book, the brainchild of Kilnsey Estate owner Jamie Roberts, whose family has been involved in the show for four generations, features a foreword by Sir Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire.
Stories have come from farmers, Dales people and sports people, including celebrated international show jumper Harvey Smith.
