174th Chertsey Agricultural Show August 12th & 13th 2017 A good day out
The Chertsey Agricultural Association was founded in 1833 when a group of local farmers and landowners, who met at local ploughing matches, decided to form the C.A.A. This was to encourage a more widespread knowledge of, and to improve the use of, agricultural techniques in arable and livestock farming. The ploughing matches led to the foundation of the Chertsey Show at which livestock classes and classes for Market Acreage were judged.
