The remains of felled trees in the grounds of Gayton Church of England School, near King's Lynn, have been transformed into stunning set of unusual sculptures.
The set of trees at Gayton Church of England School, near King's Lynn, had to come down as they were rotting and unsafe for pupils.
Now they are incredible sculptures, including a dragon's head and a castle turret, created by talented chain saw carvers for pupils and staff at the school to enjoy.
Headteacher Rachael Greenhalgh said: 'They really are spectacular, and the children find the pieces absolutely stunning.
'When we had the remains of these felled trees, we wondered what on earth we should do about them. Then someone at the school suggested we approach a group of chain saw carvers.

'The carvers came to Norfolk for a few days, stayed on the school site, and transformed them into these fabulous pieces for us.'
The sculptures were officially opened by Colin Manning, the Mayor of West Norfolk, earlier this week.
