Hundreds of people packed into a marquee at the start of August to celebrate a tradition almost 150 years old.
Hewish, Puxton and Wick St Lawrence Harvest Home took place on August 4 with 700 people enjoying a day packed with fun.
A delicious lunch and a super selection of sweet treats was served, followed sheep races, which entertained the crowd, and games for children.
Later in the evening, the tables were tossed aside and performances from Weston bands Lipinski, Zeals and Guantanamo Bay kept all the revellers dancing long into the night.
The event was celebrating its 145th year this month.
