Appleby horse fair - picture

A traveller washes his horse in the River Eden during the annual Appleby Horse Fair. Thousands of participants from Romany, gypsy and travelling communities are expected at the week-long fair, held in Cumbria since 1685. Horses are washed and groomed before being ridden along the 'mad mile' to be viewed by potential buyers.
