A TOWN’S redevelopment may jeopardise a 137-year-old agricultural show.
Planning consent was granted for £15m building work in Penistone and although this year's agricultural show will go ahead, its future is uncertain.
Show organisers say the new development will impinge on the showground, leaving them no space.
The plans include a 190-space car park, fire and ambulance stations, a market, council offices and a bowling green.
A 14-acre space on the corner of the land is also earmarked for a new Tesco supermarket.
Press officer for the agricultural show’s organising committee, Liz Walker, said: “We won’t be stopping the show this year.
“We’re concentrating hard on putting it on, which is hard enough in this present climate without all this.
“We’re ignoring Tesco for the minute, but we can’t ignore it for much longer.
“This year we can get by, by the skin of our teeth, but next year will be very different as Tesco will be up and running by then.
“The council was talking about giving us some compensatory land because we will be losing some of the showground, but that hasn’t come to fruition yet and we don't know where we stand.”
This year’s Penistone agricultural show will be on Saturday, September 12.
Various livestock will be on display including cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, pigeons, hens, horses and dogs.
