As part of the Wolds Walking Festival, walkers in Victorian costume enacted the grisly murder of a parish constable in Hemingby.

The offence took place in the village in 1876.

Fellow walkers were then taken to meet the curly coated pigs and toured places in Hemingby which were involved in the crime.

They then dispersed leaving the children to find the constable’s gravestone in the village for a prize.

Some walkers visited the church, some went to the garden of one of the cottages and others took the opportunity to have a meal in the pub.
