Visitors to Sheringham Park had a chance to meet wartime workers ranging from a farmer's wife, to a pair of Women's Timber Corps 'Lumberjills', at an annual living history weekend organised by a team of National Trust staff and volunteers.
Other characters on hand to chat to walkers included an Edwardian lady and her gardener, played by Sheringham Park volunteers Charlotte Slade and Django Robinson, and a member of the Home Guard, played by archaeologist and Sheringham Park ranger Rupert Eris, who first came up with the idea of holding the event six years ago.
Organising team member Claire Hack, who works at Felbrigg Hall visitor centre, said: 'Sheringham Park is obviously the most amazing place for natural history but there are so many different layers that many people have no idea about, so the living history event gives us an opportunity to highlight that.'
The living history event continues on Sunday from 11am-4pm. Free entry, with £2 payable for a children's history trail.
