The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Kettlewell - Scarecrow Festival

Kettlewell is about 60 miles from Manchester yet it is a different world - set in Wharfedale in the rolling hills and valleys of the Yorkshire Dales.

Every year since 1994 in order to raise funds for the local community a Scarecrow Festival has been held with a 100 plus scarecrows on display around the village.

This certainly attracts the tourists - today the first day of the Festival attracted quite a large crowd. I'm certainly glad I was there early morning at 9 a.m.

Here are a few of the displays you'll find ..

We have no time to stand and stare?
