A Lake District attraction has planted a large "poppy" to mark the anniversary of the start of the First World War.
The Lakeland Maize Maze, at Sedgwick near Kendal in Cumbria, measures 150 metres by 175 metres and has been created in a maize crop.
Officals from the attraction expect more than 18,000 visitors to walk through the maze this year.
Owner, Graham Wadsworth, says: “Our poppy design is the most poignant we have had as the theme for our maze and we hope that families will reflect on the sacrifices made by great-great grandparents and other relatives who perhaps fought in World War 1.”
