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 ..
