The streets were teaming with Vikings and there was plenty to see and do on the first day of Stockport’s Viking Festival.
Longboats sailed down the mile, and strange dragons lurked in the dungeon.
St. Mary’s Church was full of music and stalls sold the strangest clothes.
Even a Roman soldier got left behind after the legions had left.
The stocks have never been so well used and people queued to go down and see our medieval dungeon.
Tomorrow you can return to do it all again, except unfortunately the dungeon can not be opened as a film crew will be setting up to use it as part of their new TV drama.
We apologise for any inconvenience but it was out of our control.
