Now in its third year, the National Trust Dunwich Heath 'sconeathon' served up 19 different types of the buttery British snack on Saturday at the Coastguard Cottages tea rooms on the east Suffolk coast.

Chef Jamie Boswell began baking the 1,000 scones, which varied in flavour from cheese and marmite to lemon curd, at 4am.

He said: 'We have seen some good scones with it and the clients are always really pleased.

'We ask for feedback and then we generally use that to gauge what is popular so we can have it as our scone of the month.'
