Pumpkin pandemonium at Wimpole Estate

To get them in the spirit for Halloween this weekend, guests at Wimpole Estate carved up a (trick-or)treat at Home Farm.
Children got the opportunity to design their own pumpkins, with some pretty spooktacular results.
Visitor experience officer Tim Casey said: “After last year, we thought our pumpkin carving would be popular, but this weekend we had more than one hundred pumpkins carved by families.
“It was a real half-term Halloween hit.
“The sunshine on Sunday particularly brought the visitors out, with lots of families enjoying a walk in the park and woodlands. The colour on the leaves on the trees is gorgeous this year.”
