For four days churches in Wayland housed life-size animals and woollen floral displays as the popular Bloom and Yarn Festival returned.
The theme for this year's event was the Creation, with Adam and Eve, deer and a range of exotic animals taking over the historic buildings in Breckles, Griston, Thompson, Great Hockham, Stow Bedon and Caston.

Penny Evans said: 'We have had lots of really positive feedback. People said they came two years ago and did not know how we could beat it but we had.
'Villagers turned up to add their hands to the volunteer rota.
Without the community pulling together the event would not have been the success it has been.'
