Gallery: Fayre and feast revives Victorian tradition

The Victorian era was brought back to life in Metheringham at the weekend as the village held its annual ‘Fayre and Feast’ event.

The reign of Queen Victoria provided the backdrop for this year’s festivities, which took place along High Street and at the village hall on Saturday between 2pm and 7pm.
