Grey clouds and spots of rain could not put off the procession to Ilfracombe of Jack-in-the Green to welcome summer.
Preceded by Ilfracombe’s town crier and followed by a procession including drummers and morris dancers, the revellers made their way to the seafront.
A good crowd turned out to watch the celebrations . . .
. . . including the world’s tallest person or shortest lamppost . . .
Then we enjoyed the beer festival in the Landmark Theatre and the music . . .
