Schoolchildren created a series of vibrant new sculptures inspired by the nature that they discovered in a local peat bog.

Earlier in the year, pupils from Dean Barwick School in Witherslack visited Foulshaw Moss nature reserve, where they discovered a wealth of colourful plants and animals living at the site, managed by Cumbria Wildlife Trust.

Back at school, the children set about making sculptures based on their experience. The sculptures will stay on public display until the end of the year.
