The scarecrows of Stanwick

Over the past few years, it has become a bit of a tradition that at the end of September Dan and I head down to Stanwick to discover all of the scarecrows on display for the Stanwick Scarecrow Festival.

Click on the years to see the entrants we photographed in 2014 and 2015.

This year was no different, and having had a mad week of rushing around with hospital appointments, trying to finish off bits on the house before baby arrived and my final few days at school it was nice to pootle down to the next village and mooch around looking at all of the hard work that had gone into the entries.

Here are some of our favourites from this year…

  1. Oh so THAT’s what they are! We drove through there last week and i wondered what an earth was going on! Did not know this was a thing haha

    1. Haha! We were like that when we first drove by a couple of years ago. They can be a bit unnerving in the dark if you don’t expect to see them!!! 😉 Worth a visit next year though.

    1. Yes, it’s the community part that I love so much. The whole village gets involved for those couple of weeks and it’s great to see them all go up one by one around the streets.
