The past came back to life with a colourful re-enactment at Codnor Castle as part of the Heritage Trust Weekend.

There were two groups camping out at the castle, plus a full range of activities, from have-a-go archery to guided tours of the castle site, with something for all the family.

Chairman Rokia Brown said: “Despite a rainy start to Saturday, several hundred visitors made their way to the castle during the two-day event, to celebrate and enjoy a site that was once the centre of administrative power for the entire area.

“Some of the visitors revisited a childhood haunt for the first time in many years.”
