VIDEO: World War One fighter touches down at Brodsworth

A replica World War One biplane had star billing at Brodsworth Hall as the conflict’s aerial battles were brought to life at the attraction.

Historians and re-enactors told visitors about the hall’s historic links to the Royal Flying Corps, through Stuart Grant-Dalton, a member of the family which lived at Brodsworth, who flew in the flying corps. They also told of the battles and the lives of the pilots and those who made the aircraft.

Youngsters queued to sit in the aircraft, which had been brought to Doncaster by road.

Events to mark the start of the war continue through the summer.
