A MEDIEVAL fair was held at Beauvale Abbey Farm last weekend.

People experienced life in the Middle Ages watching knights battle in a living history enactment and browsing a medieval market.

Farm owner Ann Whyte said: “The whole feel of the place was absolutely fantastic.

“The medieval camp and everyone wandering around in their medieval gear was amazing.”

Mr and Mrs Whyte also put on guided walks and talks for visitors to see the Beauvale Priory remains which are on their land.
