GAMES and toys dating back to the 19th Century went on show at a history exhibition.

Visitors flocked to the display, which included more that 20 exhibits, at the Heritage Centre, in Horden, earlier this month.

Part of the 100 Years of Horden event, it included a dolls’ house as well as games and toys from as far back as the 1890s.

Organiser Jane Bentham, from the village, said: “We had a really good turnout for the display. It created quite a bit of interest and seemed to be really popular.”
