IAN CLARKE Park Farm at Swanton Morley, near Dereham, will host a three-day Civil War event featuring a 17th century-style village and battle.


The cannons will roar, the pikes will clash and the musket fire will be heard as the English Civil War era is re-created in Mid Norfolk.

Park Farm at Swanton Morley, near Dereham, will host a three-day event featuring the Sealed Knot organisation, which will set up a 17th century-style village and re-enact a battle.
