2021 marks 100 years since Kettering's Wicksteed Park opened.

It was founded by Charles Wicksteed, who bought the land in 1913 and initially wanted to build a model village. But after the First World War and housing reforms he decided to create a park for local people to spend their leisure time.

Last month we brought you pictures from the park in the 1920s as the first part of a series of picture specials.

Here's some more pictures from the 1930s onwards.
