LOCAL NEWS: MELTON MOWBRAY PLOUGHDAY FAIR
Nottingham Guardian, 25th Jan.1888, No.9978, p.8c
"This once famous fair seems likely soon to become a thing of the past. Yesterday the show of horses and beasts were exceedingly small, and prices ruled low. The colts were in the best force, but these were not either in point of numbers or quality equal to previous years."
