Tom Rowley-Conwy, whose father is Lord Langford, manages events at Bodrhyddan.

He said: "The weekend saw us host a brilliant re-enactment event. Both days were well attended by the public who came along to see our 250 plus re-enactors replicate everything from a road block on arrival to firing demonstrations, military vehicles and trench warfare.

"It was fantastic to see a wide demographic of attendees.

"We hope that events like No Man's Land serve to both educate and entertain the public, whilst also reminding visitors of the ultimate sacrifice made by those who fought in the wars.
