A village market in Barkway was bursting at the seams when hoards of people turned out last Saturday.
Stall holders selling a range of garden tools, furniture, clothes, books, records and CDs, reported a bumper year for sales at the event in the grounds of Manor Farm.
Friends of Barkway Church organised a popular barbecue, while Barkway School offered tea and home-made cakes. The Wood Green animal charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind, and Khandelight all had displays.
An additional attraction this year was the visit of three alpacas from Yew Tree Farm in Anstey. People were all eager to take a selfie with the furry friends.
Barkway Church hosted a photographic exhibition and an organ recital.
