A gym dedicated to weightlifting has opened in a barn.
Red Beard Barbell Club, in Moor Farm, marked its opening on Sunday with an open day.
The gym was founded by Charlie Knight, also known as Red, a British Weightlifting coach.
He said: “It’s a barn on a farm, with platforms and heavy weights – somewhere between a classic basement gym and a modern commercial gym. It’s quite unique.
“One of the things I’m trying to do is get people who aren’t that big, hulking stereotype. ”
Members of the gym can train in Olympic weightlifting disciplines, and Charlie is hoping to add equipment to enable powerlifting training.
Charlie offers to meet all new members for a one-to-one and also offers sessions for children .
