“How lovely is this,” says Wisbech Tweet after her visit to a wondrous Fenland pumpkin experience.

“As the sunflowers go past their best but still wave their heads up pop the pumpkins, let your children have fun inside the tunnels,” says Tweet.

“Then either choose a pumpkin from inside or even better let the walk through the pumpkin patch and pick their own.

The indoor and outdoor traditional pumpkin patch opened on October 6.
