   Each year there  the Egton Gooseberry show / competition at Egton Bridge just north of Whitby in the Church hall.  I have  visited this strange show many times, often with my father who one year entered some Kiwi fruit ( as a joke). It's all very serious stuff, measurements, weights, apperance etc. The lady in question is arriving late with her entries, the bridge is behind her. The railing exist, in fact this is a fair representation of the place. My parents owned a small detached cottage at Egton Bridge and I spent many happy times exploring the woods and the river Esk which runs through the valley.
