Hundreds of people enjoyed a traditional harvest festival at Sacrewell over the weekend.

For the first time since its restoration, flour was being milled in the Grade II watermill, while the shire horse ploughing proved a popular feature once again.

Marketing executive Megan Allen said: β€œIt went really well and it was a great harvest festival.”

The farm worked closely with Peterborough Environment City Trust and The Green Backyard on a number of activities and Mrs Allen thanked them for their support.
