Every year in the Crowborough, East Sussex area, strange scarecrows appear in people’s gardens, on the corners of roads, in hedges and in other unexpected places.
This year there are over 76 of them, but they’re not easy to spot, so you can download an online map of them all.
We drove round for ages, trying to spot them all.
There are even tiny scarecrows popping out here and there.
The village of Motts Mill had really thrown themselves into the fun! There are tiny scarecrows all over the village.
The Crowborough and Villages Scarecrow Festival runs from the 30th August-19th September.
A winner is declared at the end.
Who would I vote for? I have no idea as they vary so much. There’s one of the Queen, a farmer with his sheep, a crashed bicycle and a pair of legs protruding out of a hedge.
Some of them move, like the cycling scarecrow and the weeing scarecrow.
I liked the policeman pointing his speed gun as we drove round a bend. He’s very realistic. Tom Daley diving into a paddling pool’s good too.
Enthusiastic people had even built complete tableaux, with groups of scarecrows!
It’s all very English and eccentric, with loads of humour and imagination in the designs.
We loved it and we’re looking forward to next year’s Trail.
