SUGAR petals, flower displays and blooming meadows all drew crowds of visitors to Manor Lodge in Sheffield for an open day.

A bouquet of activities was held at the 14-hectare site, which is being restored, to explore its heritage and story.

Life-sized deer sculptures were just one of the attractions at what used to be the Great Sheffield Deer Park.

Artist Daisy Frossard crafted the colourful animals with children, as part of the Sheffield Children’s festival, to bring the long-lost herd back to life.

Sure France, chief executive of Green Estate, the social enterprise restoring and managing Manor Lodge, said the summer open day and flower festival had been a great success.

She added: “It is a big day to celebrate the site’s history and everything that is flower based. Sheffield Manor Lodge is well known for its heritage but not only for that - there is so much to enjoy for everybody. We have an autumn event as well which attracts people to the site and hopefully keeps them coming back.”
