A group of autistic people have been discovering their creativity thanks to the beauty of Cumbria.

Ashleigh Fell, one of the group members, explained that the sessions have been run at Ford Park in Ulverston over the past few weeks.

The exercises have allowed the participants to take photographs of the surrounding area and close-up shots of what nature has to offer.

Ashleigh said: "A small group of us with no previous experience of taking photos have been taking photos of Ford Park every couple of weeks.

"Considering none of us had ever taken photos before I think we’ve done a pretty good job."

The work has been conducted alongside a Health and Wellbeing Coach, whose 'amazing' efforts have helped shape the group's debut art piece.

The collaborative display is now available to view at Ford Park.
