Thousands of visitors flocked to a village’s busy summer market over the bank holiday weekend.

More than 100 stalls selling books, clothes and antiques, were held at the sixth Langham Street Market, which ran throughout the village on Monday.

The event also featured a barbecue, tombola, raffle and family games.

Funds raised on the day go towards the maintenance and refurbishment work at the village hall.

Funds raised are still being counted but event publicist Richard Braithwaite, who ran an antiques and collectors stall outside his house in Church Street, was delighted with the success of the event.

He said: “It went very very well indeed.

“The weather was fantastic and thousands of people came from far and wide. It was a great day for the village.”
