Ramsey showcased its heritage earlier this month with visitors from far and wide getting a glimpse of the town’s history.
Hundreds of people descended on Ramsey to enjoy its sites, which were free to explore for the day, along with enjoying the specially organised activities.
One of those was the 1940s camp, in Wood Lane, with many stopping off at the NAAFI to enjoy refreshments.
Ann Cuthbert, from Promoting Ramsey, said: “It was a really great day, a lovely sunny day, and we had a constant stream of people coming.
“A day like this is important because if we get a lot of people coming to the heritage sites, which are all run by volunteers, then they are sustainable for the future. It also creates a great buzz for the town, we have a lot to be proud of.”

Also opening its doors were the Ramsey Rural Museum, and the Old Nene Golf and Country Club’s Family Day which had medieval re-enactors and archers for people to enjoy.
There was also a special hunt for youngsters as they were tasked with finding the Ramsey ‘rammies’ hidden all over the town.
