More than 450 youngsters enjoyed a medieval-themed camping event organised by Blyth Valley Scouts.

The three-day event, i.medi Camp, took place in the grounds of Seaton Delaval Hall and included medieval dance workshops, leather and rustic wood work sessions, story-tellers and a recreation of a traditional medieval village built on site.

Youngsters also tried modern activities archery, aqua zorbing, climbing and mountain biking.

Neal Armiger, district commissioner for Blyth Valley Scouts, said: “It’s an ideal site for us being so local and the young people thoroughly enjoyed a weekend in the great outdoors packed full of challenges and adventures which is what scouting is all about.”
