A wooden gate with images of butterflies, mice and birds has been dazzling children in North Lincolnshire.

Pupils at Althorpe and Keadby Primary School have been admiring the impressive acoustic barrier which leads into a "magical" wood that has been improved thanks to an £80,000 regeneration scheme.

The money, which has been provided by charity Friends of Althorpe and Keadby School (FAKS), a group that helps fund projects for the education centre, has gone towards improving the overall look of the site.

It has helped create a picturesque entrance and beyond that an impressive path which continues the wildlife theme and provides educational benefits by teaching children about the food chain.

FAKS member Kathryn Russell told the Epworth Bells and Crowle Advertiser: "The gate leads into a fairy woodland and we tried to create the whole fairy theme with butterflies and animals. It’s a nice entrance for the children and adults to use although it’s not the main entrance as that’s off New Generation Park."ADNFCR-3337-ID-801325307-ADNFCR
