Dealers, collectors and residents wandered through the hundred or so stalls on Sunday, August 13.

The market was originally set up by Kate Lee from Blyburgate Antiques and Christine Pinsent from Saxons in 2009.

Mrs Lee said: 'All the traders reported that it had been an excellent day and even the weather held out.'

On the day general and specialist dealers could be found selling a wide range of good quality antiques and collectables including furniture, china, linen and jewellery.
