The wartime era returned to picturesque Brodsworth Hall in evocative fashion as staff and visitors took a trip down memory lane for a weekend packed with golden memories and nostalgia.

The English Heritage property’s three-day Forties Fete weekend captured all the sights and sounds of the World War 2 era - with the iconic Spitfire fighter plane the highlight of the weekend, sitting on the lawns outside the hall for visitors to take a closer look.

Unfortunately, strong winds over the weekend put paid to a flypast for guests but there was still plenty to occupy visitors young and old with costumes, music and memorabilia from the era all helping to roll back the years.
