A pumpkin patch outside Bury St Edmunds has opened to visitors ahead of Halloween.
Blackthorpe Barn pumpkin patch on the Rougham Estate opened to the public on Saturday, October 2.
In the summer Blackthorpe Barn was a 'sea of yellow' as 88,000 sunflowers were growing next to the pumpkin patch.
But now, owners of the patch are reminding people to bring their wellies as the autumn weather starts to set in.
Food and drinks are available to visitors including tea, coffee, toasties, cakes and a selection of ice creams.
