A fair in Stow has been in existence for over 500 years when a charter was granted in 1476 for it to take place twice a year in May and October. Originally a place to sell sheep as the trade in wool declined, the fair became a horse fair attracting gypsies and travellers from all over the country

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment at the Stow Horse Fair in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire. The image showcases a group of men diligently labelling auction entrants, immersed in the bustling atmosphere of this historic event. With its roots dating back over 500 years, the Stow Horse Fair holds immense cultural significance. Originally established as a sheep market in 1476, it evolved into a renowned horse fair that attracted gypsies and travelers from all corners of the country. As trade in wool declined, this fair became an essential hub for buying and selling horses. The photograph transports us to the vibrant scene of early 20th-century commerce and tradition. It offers a glimpse into the customs and practices that have shaped generations of attendees. From traders negotiating deals to curious onlookers observing with intrigue, every detail tells a story. Katherine MacFee's skillful composition beautifully encapsulates both people and animals within one frame. The juxtaposition between humans engaged in business transactions and majestic horses adds depth to this visual narrative. As we admire this remarkable piece from Historic England's collection, we are reminded of how events like these play an integral role not only in local economies but also in preserving our rich heritage.
