Visitors to an art and craft show in Stamford Bridge learnt about plans to create a tapestry that tells the story of the Battle of Stamford Bridge.

A copy of a section of the Bayeux Tapestry was on display at the event, held at the village hall, to show people how the Stamford Bridge tapestry will look. 2016 sees the 950th anniversary of The Battles of Stamford Bridge, Fulford and Hastings and it is intended that the Stamford Bridge tapestry will be completed by September next year. It is being made to an exacting standard by members of The Battle of Stamford Bridge Society, who launched the project in January.
