No fewer than 40 individuals purchased sheep at the Bakewell Store Lamb Sale. Buyers had come from as far as Devon, Norfolk, and Wales to compete for the 6,000+ lambs catalogued.

Trade was outstanding with a remarkable overall average of £66.60 and this bearing in mind that many producers were reaching the end of their lamb crop.

There were substantial numbers of smaller long term lambs and as so often is the case, the smaller they were, the dearer they appeared. (Bakewell)
