46 archive pictures of Kettering village's most popular event - the Geddington Barrel Trundle

This week we are looking back an event that saw people having fun in the sun – and having to drag a barrel through a river.

Not content with getting drenched annually at the celebrated Boxing Day Squirt, the people of Geddington organised another barrel-based entertainment.

Teams were challenged to transport an empty metal barrel over obstacles in the picturesque historic village as well as negotiating their way through the ford.

So we hope these archive pictures bring back memories of sunny funny days.
