Stalls selling fresh produce and tasty treats from across the county welcomed visitors to the event in Cheddar on Sunday.

Thousands of people lined the streets at Cheddar Gorge, and savoured treats including scotch eggs, steamed puddings and marshmallows.

Foodies also sampled chilli gin, Jacqui's Homemade Sweets, Old Jallop cider and more.

Cheddar Food and Drink Festival returned to the village for its third year, and live music also entertained revellers on the day.
