Emberton Country Park celebrated its 50th anniversary over the weekend.

On Saturday, vikings performed in an exhilarating battle re-enactment, while vistors were given the opportunity to go on a guided countryside walk or even try their hand at archery and axe throwing.

Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councillor Keith McLean, said: “It was a very successful day, with thousands of people attending, either by car or on foot, from all over the borough and further afield.

“The various displays, such as the Viking battle re-enactment, the dog show, and the chainsaw carving, went down a storm with people of all ages.

“We also had a busker who was very popular, and performed all day - and the archery and axe-throwing lessons which were very popular indeed.

“There were also stalls of all different types to suite everyone’s tastes, and everyone there seemed to be enjoying themselves. All in all a terrific day.”
