Despite a wet weekend welcome for the fairground staff, the temperatures were mild for the time of year and there were enough breaks from the rain for families to enjoys the rides and food stalls.

It is not the first time the fair has been photographed with a drone from above.

In 2017, drone operator Tim Walker took a series of moody nighttime photos of the fair as it was in full swing.
