An injured First World War soldier and his nurse and landscape designer Humphry Repton will be putting in an appearance at a living history weekend being held at Sheringham Park.
Organised by a group of National Trust volunteers, the event, which will span Edwardian times, to the 1950s, was held for the first time in 2011.
Volunteers will be handing out time travellers’ maps at an event tent near the park’s visitor centre, with highlighted historic sites including an Edwardian garden, a Second World War pillbox manned by Home Guard volunteers, a 1950s farmyard with vintage tractor, and a working sawmill, complete with traction engine loaned by farmer Richard Parrot, of Weeting, near Thetford Forest.
History Comes to Life runs at Sheringham Park on July 14 and 15 from 10am-4pm. Entry is free, with car parking charges for non-National Trust members.
