Halloween is coming up later in October, and many people will be looking to get a pumpkin for the big day around Sussex.

Carving a pumpkin and using it as a decoration is an enjoyable activity for the season undertaken by many.

Whilst finding one from a supermarket is useful, many people like the experience of going out to a farm to pick their own out.

Here are some patches around Sussex where you can go to pick out a spooky Jack-O'-Lantern for the season.
