The tug-of-war and falconry exhibition were among the most popular attractions, while Flyin’ Ryan’s Motor Cycle Stunt Show drew a big audience with his jaw-dropping display.

Organisers thanked all those who came along over the weekend via the Stotfold Watermill Twitter account, while on their Facebook account they praised the brilliant work of the volunteers who made the event possible.

The post read: “Stotfold Watermill would like to thank all those who volunteered this weekend and all the people who visited and supported the event. We had a great weekend despite the rain. All proceeds made this weekend go towards running the mill.

“We had an exhibitor this weekend who has never been to the mill – she was amazed by the strength of the volunteers and a community that has transformed the building from ashes to the incredible building it is today. We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you.”
