Apple harvest invitation to West families
Families are being encouraged to return to a Westcountry orchard this weekend to help collect apples to be pressed for an award-winning cider.
Killerton Estate, near Exeter, opened its doors on Saturday and Sunday for families to help gather up the fruit. The farm's medium-dry cider has consistently won awards from the likes of the Taste of the West and National Trust for its unique flavour.
The 'Big Pick Up' days are free, with mini-wheelbarrows for children to use and free cider tasters for adults.
Some 100 varieties of English apples are grown on the estate, which is owned by the National Trust.

Helen Trebble from Killerton's countryside team said: "We very much rely on the help from our volunteers and local community to harvest all the apples in time."
The estate is open from 11am to 4pm on October 12 and 13 and comes a week before its two day Cider and Apple Festival on October 19 and 20.
