England's Big Picture: 24 - 30 December


Each day we feature an interesting photograph shared with us from across England.

This week we are featuring a special Best of 2018 gallery, showing our most engaging images from across the year, according to social media.

Our new year gallery will be published from 31 December 2018, and the theme will be "New Beginnings" as suggested by Andrew Watson, Wayne Lowery, Sandra Oxley, Esther Johnson and Ralph Rayner.

Find out how you can join in and submit your images and videos below.
