Three hundred re-enactors - British service personnel, US army and airforce, Home Guard, French Resistance fighters and even Winston Churchill - created the atmospheric scenes at the popular Derbyshire attraction.

Organisers estimated the crowd to be around 2,000 strong on Saturday, though Sunday’s weather kept numbers down.
