The Froggatt & District Horticultural Society maintains an archive of records dating back to its foundation in 1935. Here, you’ll find some of that archive illustrating the friendly and characterful nature of the village and its annual village show.
For now much of the information comes from a commemorative booklet written in 1994. “(A Peak District Village) Froggatt and Froggatt Horticultural Society 1935 – 1994” gives an insight into the Horticultural Society and Froggatt Show’s evolution to 1994. It provides a fascinating resource for us to discern what has and hasn’t changed about this most traditional of Peak District village Shows in the last 20 years.
