Young and old scrambled through bushes and gazed into the highest branches of trees as they searched for clues in an Easter egg hunt.

The Cadbury Easter egg hunt at the National Trust’s Rainham Hall in Broadway, Rainham, took place over the bank holiday weekend.

Visitors followed clues on wooden eggs hidden in trees during the treasure hunt style quest around the gardens.

Once successfully completing the hunt everyone received a Cadbury chocolate Easter bunny.

Jesse Lock, community gardener, said: “It was great to see the garden being used by all, with lots of children rolling down the grassy hills and picnics galore.”

In total 777 children took part in the hunt in a weekend that saw more than 2,000 visitors head to the restored 18th century merchant’s house.

The National Trust property is open from Wednesday to Sunday 10am-5pm. Volunteering days will be held in the hall’s gardens today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) from 10am to 3pm.
