Fair attracts 4,500 people to Pensthorpe Nature Reserve

Around 4,500 visitors have flocked to a gardening, craft and food fair held at Pensthorpe Nature Reserve this weekend.

The two-day event is held at the reserve, near Fakenham, each year with the wonders of Norfolk nature providing a stunning backdrop.

This year there were more than 70 stalls, with top nurseries from around the county setting up to show off their plants.

Exhibitors also showcased a range of local produce, from jewellery to fine Norfolk ales, and there were demonstrations by blacksmiths from Holkham Forge.

Event organiser Kirsty Willingham said: 'It's been a fantastic event and the atmosphere has been incredible.'

Visitors to the event today (Sunday) were also treated to a display of vintage tractors and steam engines.
