With an array of country sports and areas devoted to falconry, fishing and archery - even the wet weather did not dampen spirits.

Instead families took part in activities and explored the exhibits at Sandringham Park.

There were umbrellas and anoraks aplenty as people explored the local businesses and stalls pitched at the site.

One unusual highlight of this year's fair is a restored vintage workmen's caravan, which has been restored by John Kerridge. The Queen Mother sat in the caravan in 1956 - and it was housed in a museum for many years until one of Mr Kerridge's friends purchased it.

The revamped piece can be found in between the Mercedes-Benz and BMW stands at the fair throughout the weekend.
