The picturesque harbour of Clovelly was packed at the weekend for the annual celebration of its famous crab and lobster industry.
Fine but cool weather meant the North Devon village was swarming with visitors, for the popular event which promotes the sustainable methods used by its fishermen to catch the crustaceans.
A variety of lobster and crab dishes were cooked on the quay throughout the event on Sunday, with a demonstration by celebrity chef Sanjay Kumar proving particularly popular.
But there was also musical entertainment, with folk music from Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll, The Vagrant Ramblers and an acapella trio, 3s Company.
Children were kept entertained by street theatre, walkabout magic and themed craft activities, with Mr and Mrs Lobster on stilts proving particularly popular.
Organiser Susan Haworth said: "Our overflow car park was overflowing. I don't know how many visitors there were but certainly it was a very, very good number.
"The day had perfect weather. When it is very very hot we have people going to the beach, the weather was perfectly fine but slightly cooler so it was exceptionally busy.
"Mr and Mrs Lobster on stilts were quite magnificently dressed and brought quite a lot of entertainment.
"Sanjai Kumar was doing chef demonstrations and that was very popular.
"People were going out on boat trips, buying fishing, lobsters and crabs."
The day was held in aid of the National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow, which exhibited some of its baby lobsters prior to their release into Clovelly Bay at the end of the day.
At the heart of the NLH's work is their lobster restocking project whereby local fishermen bring pregnant female lobsters to the hatchery so that their delicate offspring are given a better chance in life by being raised in captivity without predators.
The young lobsters are raised to a size where they can be released back into the sea and look after themselves.
