Hundreds of people turned out to enjoy a family fun day at one of the borough’s oldest landmarks yesterday.

The sun was shining as crowds flocked to Headstone Manor and Harrow Museum in Pinner View to celebrate the May Bank Holiday.

The Green Man & May Queen-themed event was hosted by Harrow Borough Council and was filled with entertainment for all the family from a vintage car show, market stalls selling arts and crafts, falconry displays and medieval combat to traditional maypole dancing.

People could also learn about the history of the 14th Century manor house with guided tours from museum staff.

Jo Saunder, museum manager, said: "It was a really fabulous day. We had about 2,500 visitors which is fantastic. The vintage car show was really popular and people enjoyed watching the medieval combat and joining in with the morris dancing.

"A lot of people also enjoyed finding out about the history of the manor house, which was owned by Henry VIII. The event is a great way of making people aware of what we have here in Harrow."

Emily Grace White, 21, who volunteers at the museum was this year's May Queen. She said: "I was crowned by the Mayor of Harrow and enjoyed walking around speaking to everyone. I joined in maypole dancing with the children and led a procession - it was a really fun day and I'd love to do it again."
