More than 600 people flocked to carbon-neutral business Hay Wood Logging Co's event, in Hutton, which raised close to £400 for the charity.

Trail blazers could walk along an interactive route over the Bank Holiday weekend to see the flowers in bloom at Hay Wood, which is estimated to be more than 400 years old.

A festival spokesman said: "We would like to thank everyone who made the 2019 Hay Wood Bluebell Open Weekend a pleasure to host.

"For the first time, the firm accepted donations for teas, coffees and snacks served at the two-day event, raising £380 for Cancer Research UK.
