Following the publication two weeks ago of two pictures from Alnwick Fair in the 1990s, Gazette reader Dennis Sisterson contacted us with some photos of his own from the popular event.

This dramatic image of a ‘wench’ being ‘ducked’ was taken at the 1985 Fair.

In coming weeks, we will be showcasing more photos from Alnwick Fair and if you have any from your collection you would like to share, then email them to ben.oconnell@jpress.co.uk

Get in touch too if you can name the unlucky lady or the Militia men in this picture.
