Stanwick Lakes played host to Nanty Narking, an afternoon of Victorian family fun, on May 10.

The event was made possible thanks to money from the Heritage Lottery Fund, which is supporting the Trading Places heritage project to celebrate the traditional skills of the Nene Valley.

Visitors got to step back 150 years and discover skills, including lace making, building a stone wall and watching the blacksmith in his forge.
