IT has been nine years since Weston's Puxton Park welcomed a litter of 13 piglets.

In September 2014, the piglets were born at the farm and adventure park, which is located just outside of Weston along the A370.

This was a momentous moment for the team at the park, considering this was their largest litter ever born up to that date.

The piglets added to the vast number of animals which already called the site home, including 1,500 lambs born the spring before.

Speaking at the time, Puxton Park’s managing director, Alistair Mead, said: “Our visitor numbers have been higher than ever with visitors flocking to see our baby lambs and our new baby donkey, Raggles.

“Now we have another new drove of 13 piglets at our park, resulting in us achieving a record year in terms of the number of piglets born here at Puxton.

“All the piglets are doing really well and are looking forward to meeting all of our visitors over the coming months.”

The park's website reads: "Come in for a friendly welcome to our 'Adventure Area' 'Fun Farm Indoor Soft Play' 'Water Pursuits' 'Tractor Tracks' 'Animal Zone' and 'Mini Railway'.

"A brilliant day out with the kids whether you want adventure, leisure or play.

"Visit the animals in our farm park and discovery barn and get high on adrenaline racing around our pedal kart tracks, or, if you have small children, try our soft play area and JCB Land sandpit.

"Either way, there's something for the whole family to enjoy."
