Homeowners in a leafy Kirklees village have showed off their gardens.

Almost two dozen gardens were thrown open for the Upper Hopton Garden Trail.

From country cottage to country house – people interested in blooms and greenery were invited to take a look at some of the finest gardens in the area.

Guests were also able to enjoy home cooked light refreshments at the Croft House Community Centre.

The village on a hill above Mirfield has a history of gardening glory having won gold medals from Yorkshire in Bloom in 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016.

In 2014 the efforts of the community volunteers saw them awarded a Silver Gilt in the Village Category of the RHS Britain in Bloom UK finals.

Proceeds from this year’s event will be put towards further ‘Hopton in Bloom’ work.
