Time Travel in Haworth

Over the weekend our little village stepped back in time to the 1940s. Billed as the best kept secret in Yorkshire Haworth was full of vintage vehicles of all descriptions and people dressed in '40s clothes from all walks of life.
Strolling up Main Street we saw glamourous ladies, GIs, police officers, spivs, land girls, sailors, you name it! Even Churchill put in an appearance.

It was a fantastic weekend and we saw a huge number of visitors to the village. There were dances organised for both evenings - tickets sold out weeks ago. During the day there were stalls selling hot food, street singers, rides in vintage buses and on the steam trains, a fly over by vintage aircraft and lots of parades.

A great opportunity to learn about our past and great entertainment too!
