Starring role for Eden's rainforest aerial walkway
This is the moment one of the world's best freerunners took to the Eden Project to showcase his skills as part of a new video.
Tim "Livewire" Shieff and Pip "Piptrix" Andresen, spent two days performing tricks at the project's rainforest and Mediterranean biomes, as well as taking to the colourful outdoor landscape.
The craze, also known as parkour, requires the participants to move through locations by running and using natural obstacles to perform tricks and often death-defying jumps.
The film focuses on the new rainforest aerial walkway and ends on a spectacular shot of the pair performing back-flips and somersaults on the roof of the giant Rainforest Biome.

Rita Broe, the project's strategic marketing director, said: "It was great to see how Tim and Pip, two of the world's best freerunners, were inspired by the Eden landscape and our new rainforest aerial walkway to perform stunning tricks. Their incredible skills make for one of the most spectacular – and fun – videos we've ever produced."
The freerunners are both members of London's high-profile Storm Freerun group, while Shieff was named Barclaycard World Freerun Champion in 2009.
Both athletes also appeared in MTV's Ultimate Parkour Challenge and have appeared in television series and adverts.
The new rainforest aerial walkway is a major addition to the Eden Project this summer, providing visitors with views through the treetops and giving an insight into the lives of people who live in the rainforest.
