Scaring from a bus-shelter

Scarecrow Festival at Hilderstone

You have to admire the small village of Hilderstone. Every summer it has a Scarecrow Festival, in which households each build a scarecrow - that very often stands outside their houses (scaring motorists - and thus living up to their descriptions!). 
The villagers really do think cleverly, creatively and right out-of-the-box.

This example sits in the village bus-shelter, waiting patiently - and probably for eternity - for a rural bus to come by.


  1. We have them round here though some of the scarecrows could be better

  2. Excellent tradition!
