The 85th English Springer Spaniel Championship was held at Thirlestane
Castle Estate, Lauder in Scotland by kind permission of Eskdale Shooting Services Ltd.
The judges were Andrew Cunningham, Graham West, Ben Randall and William Megaughin. Gavin Hannam, Steward of the Beat and his team, did an excellent job of preparing the ground, with plenty of game to test the fifty-six dogs and handlers. The weather was bitter and changeable over the three days with gale force winds and snow, against all the odds, it proved to be an excellent championship.
