The historic venue hosted a Wildlife and Country Fair over the weekend.

Among the attractions were birds of prey, Shire horse logging, a dog agility show and a performance by Morris dancers.

Natalie Owen from Stafford bravely got up close and personal with one of the birds of prey – with Mr Jingles the Harris Hawk perching on her head.

Meanwhile the Stafford Morris men wowed crowds with their performance

Dog lovers were able to enter their pets into a canine contest organised by PADS Dog Training.

Well behaved pooches were given the chance to win prizes – with awards given for both fun and pedigree classes.
