Two new champions were crowned at this year’s ever popular Conker Festival following a series of hotly contested knock out bouts.
The Box Moor Trust’s Autumn Festival on Saturday, October 10 and the Conker Festival the following day saw around 500 people turn out at Blackbirds Moor in Hemel Hempstead to take part in the activities on offers.
Stalls did brisk business, while crowds got to see woodworking in action thanks to chainsaw carver Will Lee and hand carver Vince King along with members of the Herts and Beds Wood Turners.
Activities included archery, storytelling, a craft tent, pottery and circus skills workshops and a mobile farm.
Victors in the conker tournament were overall winner Harvey Barnes, and junior winner Luke Pierleoni.
