A county fair celebrating its 40th anniversary had its biggest year ever.
An estimated 2,000 people flocked to Raveningham County Fair on Saturday, September 2.
Roy Russell, treasurer of the fair committee, said: “It was a mixture of the old fair and something new.”
On display was a threshing machine from 1949 which was also present at the very first fair in 1977.
It is thought that the day raised between £5,000 and £6,000, all of which will be divided between local charities.
