Hughenden Manor captured the nostalgia of war-time Britain as the popular annual 1940s weekend returned. 

Visitors stepped back into the 1940s when the manor was a secret Air Ministry mapping base and enjoyed a variety of demonstrations and performances on September 16 and 17. 

Volunteers put on mortar firing and WWII weapon demonstrations, Paratrooper displays, dance lessons and a skirmish between British and German infantry, while there was a home guard drill and period vehicles on display to marvel at. 

There were also pedal planes, an activity dugout, flight simulator and Punch and Judy shows to keep children entertained while adults enjoyed browsing vintage stalls, historic talks and music from The Polka Dots, Ross Hardman and Fiona Harrison.

To cap off the weekend, a Battle of Britain memorial flight dropped by on Sunday with a Hurricane and a Spitfire flypast. 

The team at the manor said the event was a success once again, adding: "We want to say a big thank you to all our volunteers, reenactors, musicians, stall holders, performers, visitors and everyone who made our 1940s weekend so special. 

"We had a fabulous time."
