Stannington goes back in time to 1940s in pictures

Visitors to Stannington on Saturday were transported back to the 1940s as the village was transformed for its Battle of Britain-themed event.

Those who went along were able to get up close to a Spitfire and a Hurricane and see the Vulcan exhibition from the Solway Aviation Museum.

They could also experience what life was like to be evacuated to Lough House Farm on board a 1940s-style bus called Rosie, see a renovated Anderson Shelter, vintage vehicles and a range of other displays.

See this week’s Morpeth Herald paper for reaction from the event’s organisers.
