A BIG crowd of gipsies and travellers descended on Stow for the traditional twice-yearly horse fair – in what could be the last event in its current home.
The sun shone last Thursday as punters came to trade horses, enjoy the many market stalls and catch up with old friends.
It could be the last time the fair is held in the field near Maugersbury Road after developer JRN properties announced plans to build a doctor’s surgery, five houses and 300-space car park on the field.
Contracts have been exchanged for the purchase of the field, but the move is subject to gaining planning permission from Cotswold District Council.
Speaking on the day of the fair, field owner Walter Henry said it all went off without a hitch.
“There wasn’t a bit of trouble, everything went lovely, everything was beautiful,” he said. “There was a big crowd.”
