A YORK attraction is hosting a fun weekend to celebrate its 40th birthday.

This year marks 40 years of the Yorkshire Museum of Farming, based at Murton Park, near York – and a string of events are planned over Saturday and Sunday to mark the special anniversary.

Throughout the celebration weekend, there will be interactive areas for children, vintage tractors, family games – and much more.

Olivia Jackson, marketing manager at the museum said: “We opened to the public in 1982. The museum preserves and displays farming artefacts from the earliest development of agriculture up to the mid-twentieth century from the historic boundaries of Yorkshire.

“Murton Park operates as a charity and not only does the site house the Yorkshire Museum of Farming, but it also has the last remaining stretch of the historic Derwent Valley Light Railway, a reconstructed Viking village and Roman fort, toy tractors, an adventure playground , livestock, and beehives. ”
