Wood sculptors carved out a thrilling experience for crowds who flocked to the showground at Tabley, near Knutsford, for the spectacular Cheshire Game and Country Fair.
The English Open Chainsaw Carving Competition saw the worlds best from Russia, Japan, America, Australia and Uganda battle it out to create amazing works of art from logs in a bid to take home a prize in the macho challenge. More than 30 carvers created unusual sculptures including a baby dragon, a guitar, a wizard and a ram, to name a few.
The chainsaw competition was just one of many spectacles which drew thousands of visitors to the event over the bank holiday weekend. Lumberjack activities, falconry displays, equine events, gundogs, fairground fun and a craft village were also among the attractions.
