In pictures: where are the Tower of London poppies now?

It's strange to think that it's a year since we watched the Tower of London's moat fill with ceramic poppies as part of art installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.

The iconic war tribute by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper was comprised of 888,246 flowers that were added to the moat between July 17 and November 11, 2014.

After the installation was deconstructed, most of the poppies were sold to raise money for six service charities. However, a couple of smaller installations are now touring the country.

One 'Weeping Window' is on show at the Woodhorn Museum in Northumberland until October. Another, 'Wave' has just been put on display at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in West Bretton until January 2016.

The waterfall of red flowers form a bridge into a lake – and it looks super beautiful. See some incredible Instagrams of the park below.
