Wrestling has always been popular in the North of England and in 1811 over 12,000 attended the wrestling at Carlisle Races with the Marquis of Queesbury and Lord Lonsdale in attendance.Grasmere soon became the Blue Riband Sports event in Northern England and was the “must go to place” for athletes to compete in and “the” place for ladies to parade their latest fashions. Think Royal Ascot. The 3 main sports events at Grasmere have always been the Fell Race, Cumberland and Westmorland style Wrestling and the Hound Trails. It is widely recognised as the main event in the Wrestling Calendar even attracting competitors from abroad .
