VILLAGERS of Brent Knoll dressed as pirates and medieval knights and gathered at the Westcroft Cider Farm on the weekend to celebrate a night of wassailing.
Crowds of people turned up for the ancient tradition, which is carried out to ensure a good harvest of fruit for making cider.
Residents played music and Brent Knoll Guides lit up the farm, in Brent Street, with tea-light lamps, while others raised a glass in celebration after the ceremony.
