FLASHBACK: Whitby Saxon maid defeats Viking

editorial image

An Anglo Saxon fair in Whitby, which took place in June 1980, attracted big crowds to the town.

Continuing our series of nostalgia pictures of the event, today we feature Saxon maiden Dwina Waterfield putting an end to one of the Thorguard Vikings during the battle on Tate Hill Sands.

We’d be pleased to hear your memories.

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