VISITORS to The Barn in Littleport were transported back to Fenland days gone by thanks to an interactive exhibition.

The fascinating story of Fenland food and farming was celebrated at the event on Saturday.

Feast of Fenland project officer Marie Kennedy got involved on Saturday by dressing up as a traditional Fenland first aider.

She showed visitors how to cure their aches and pains with a vast array of locally sourced products.

Miss Kennedy said: "It was a great chance for people in Littleport to find out about local history."

The project was organised by the Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service.
