ARMOURED men went marching through Solihull as part of the annual St Alphege Fayre.

Dressed up to the nines in their finest Cromwell clothes, members of the Sealed Knot helped to re-enact life in the English Civil War years.

Other attractions included tours of the parish church, a tombola and a spectacular display by Solihull Flower Club

The fayre celebrates the life of St Alphege - who served as Archbishop of Canterbury more than 1000 years ago. Solihull’s link with the saint began when the town centre church was named after him.
