Visitors to Brodsworth Hall did a double take today - as they were invited to take a look at a giant penny farthing in the grounds of the historic stately home.

Staff at the Doncaster visitor attraction installed a huge piece of artwork on the croquet lawn that resembles a Victorian-era cycle.

It was all part of the celebrations for the Tour de Yorkshire cycle race, which rolls through Doncaster on Saturday.
