'HEDGE art' has been turning heads in a county village.

The artwork is located outside a home on Stenton Loan in the village of Stenton, towering over passers-by.

Two 10ft-high hedges have been carefully cut into two tall gnome-like figures.

One passer-by said: "I'm not sure if they're gnomes or Smurfs but they look great. It's very creative."

They are located on either side of the entrance to the cottage.

The resident responsible for the work has been creating designs for years.

When approached by the Courier about their topiary talents, they wished to remain anonymous.
