Pupils at a Cornish school are to get a taste of 16th Century life by creating an Elizabethan garden.
Trerice is a rare Cornish example of an Elizabethan manor house
Children from St Newlyn East School will transform an area of land at the National Trust's Trerice, near Newquay.
They will plan, develop and manage the garden and grow herbs, vegetables and flowers from the 1570s, including purple carrots.
The garden will be recreated with the help of the first English gardening book, published in 1577.
The long-term project will form part of the pupils' curriculum work and will enable them to learn more about the Elizabethan era.
Pupils will also help manage the Trerice orchard.
The children are already heavily involved in the creation of a more environmentally rich and historically accurate wildflower meadow under the Cornish apple trees.
James Breslin, Assistant Property Manager at Trerice said: "This ongoing link with St Newlyn East School is a fantastic way for the National Trust to strengthen our relationships with the school and local community.
"It not only provides brilliant hands-on learning opportunities for the children, but also helps to improve the property's garden for all of our visitors to enjoy."
Trerice is a rare Cornish example of an Elizabethan manor house which has changed little since its completion in 1573.
During the 18th and 19th centuries many of the earlier houses were pulled down by the Cornish gentry and replaced with modern homes
