The Shire Of Darton

Heading into town last Sunday I noticed some heavily armoured people with swords at the park across the road from where I live… I quickly  pulled into the car park and went over and asked if it was OK to take some shots… They kindly obliged and went through a couple of their practice routines 🙂

They are part of The Shire of Darton which is the Wellington, New Zealand branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a world-wide society that recreates the better parts of life in pre-17th Century Europe.
