THIS year’s bumper crop of fruit was celebrated at the weekend at the Arnside and Silverdale AONB Apple Day.
More than 1,000 people, including 250 children, were at the annual event at Orchard Barn, Briery Bank, Arnside.
Visitors were invited to the 250 year-old orchard to buy apples and view orchard wildlife displays while experts helped identify rare varieties of apple.
There were also poems and stories, a beekeeping expert, apple bobbing and orchard games. Organiser Barbara Henneberry from the AONB partnership said “Apple Day is all about celebrating the value of orchards and the landscape areas of natural beauty.”
