Dedicated gardener spends 10 years trimming garden hedge into fearsome 100ft dragon

Dedicated gardener John Brooker has spent a decade making his outdoor masterpiece - a giant hedge sculpted into a 100ft long dragon.

John, 75, who lives in a cottage in the grounds of Frizzleton Farm near King's Lynn in Norfolk, carefully clipped his hedgerow into a huge fairytale monster, complete with six legs, wings and pointed teeth.

He spends hours trimming the 20ft high hedge to keep it in shape, and has added extra details like flared nostrils over the years.

John’s enormous dragon runs along the side of his garden and often surprises ramblers trekking along the nearby footpath.

Walker Paul Bevvings, who spotted the garden beast, said: ‘A dragon was the last thing I expected to spot in the Norfolk countryside.’

'I got quite a shock when I looked over the fence and came face to face with it.'
