Agricultural shows in Yorkshire under threat as pressure mounts on next generation of farmers
A statement on the Honley Show Facebook page read:-

"It is with much regret that we have just taken the decision to cancel this year's show for reasons of public safety.

"The field is flooded and the movement of traffic on and off the field would be difficult and potentially dangerous.

"Huge apologies to all. This is not a decision we have taken lightly."
