​Dramatic and beautiful images of wildlife will be on display at Astley Hall as a national photography exhibition starts its tour at the historic Chorley attraction.

Everything from magnificent marine life through to beautiful birds have been captured through the lens as part of the British Wildlife Photography Awards, which announced its winners at the start of September.

Over 100 images – both winning and commended entries – will be exhibited in the art gallery and it is your first opportunity to see the exhibition outside of London.

The winning images were chosen from thousands of entries to 15 separate categories including a special film category for wildlife in HD and two junior categories to encourage young people to connect with nature through photography.

The overall winning image (pictured) is ‘Hitchhikers’ – a lion’s mane jellyfish by George Stoyle.

The exhibition will run from Saturday 17 September until Sunday 30 October – the Hall is free to enter and is open Saturdays and Sundays between 12noon and 4.30pm.

Chorley is just one of seven places in the country you can see the exhibition over the next year.
