A traditional vintage fair drew attention and support from near and far when Honing's two-day event started with a 'Blessing of the Ploughs'.
The event has been practiced for many decades and was followed by a ploughing competition, with various tractors and a display of classic vehicles including Landrovers.
This year, the former vicar of Honing Church, near North Walsham, The Revd Barry Furness, conducted the ceremony with holy water and a prayer.
Organiser Diana Howes and volunteers prepared refreshments including homemade cakes, burgers, jacket potatoes.
A dog agility and First World War exhibition about Honing and Crostwight was also on display, with the history of those who fought during the war and the village shop and museum was open on both days, which encouraged visitors of all ages.
