Halloween fun has come to Wroxham Barns this week as the site opened up its first-ever pumpkin patch.
Hundreds of families have been visiting the attraction every day this half term break to carve their own creations into the big orange squashes and take part in other 'spooky' activities.
Ben Marshall, general manager, said: "We do a pumpkin festival every year but this is the first year we've grown our own pumpkins, and there are around 7,000 in there.
"People can grab a wheelbarrow and head out to the pumpkin patch, pick one out and go into the barn to carve it.
"There has been such a variety of carvings - Avengers heroes, character from YouTube and the usual cats and scary faces.
"It's not just the kids either, the mums and dad are getting as well. We're really pleased and the team are loving it."
Mr Marshall said other activities including meeting 'Wilma the Witch", maggot racing and potion lessons.
