Today, we take a trip back to the time when an Anglo Saxon fair took place in Whitby.

We found a series of photos in our archive showing large crowds enjoying the festivities, which included ‘fights’ between the Saxons and the Vikings.

The fair took place in June 1980 and we’d be pleased to hear your memories.

We’ll be featuring more photos from the Saxon fair on our website throughout this week.
