As we commemorate the end of World War One, we thought we would take the time to appreciate some of the incredible poppy displays popping up across Cornwall.

It is to mark 100 years since the end of WW1 and to remember all those who gave their lives for our freedom.

Take a look at just a few of Cornwall's moving poppy displays...


The church in Gunnislake that has been shining a light on this poppy display every night.

They even held a poppy blessing.

Good effort Cornwall!
