Goblins, ghosts, ghouls and witches went on the hunt for ingredients to make a witch's brew, at a fancy dress Halloween trail held at Holt Country Park.
The event was organised by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) senior countryside supervisor Anne-Marie Gedge, who dreamed up a spooky challenge asking youngsters and their families to help mend a witch's broomstick by collecting feathers, stones, sticks and leaves as they followed a series of gruesome animal fact boards leading to the witch, played by volunteer ranger Donna Welch.
Children completing the one-and-a-quarter-mile trail were given a treat by the Green Man of the Woods, played by countryside ranger Martin Hope, before trying their hands at pumpkin carving with their families.
The trail, which attracted hundreds of children and their families, was part of a programme of October half term activities organised by NNDC. For information, visit www.north-norfolk.gov.uk
