More than 600 people took part in this year's the Archdeacon's Charge at Holkham Hall.
The May 7 event included a fun run - the charge itself - as well as a picnic, craft market and vintage car display in the grounds of the 18th-century country house.
Angela George, co-ordinator, said she was delighted with the response to the event.
She said: 'This was a great opportunity for parishes to come together in the stunning grounds of Holkham Hall.
'It was great to see so many people at this year's charge.
