The hell with cows, everyone should have a scarecrow festival!
After further exploration of Dovedale was rained off (we got as far as Reynard’s cave)
we headed back to check out some of the other delights on offer in the Peak District. I have to admit, the scarecrow festival wasn’t appealing at first, but we went anyway. The village of Alstonefield had 30+ scarecrows scattered around doing day to day (and occasionally surreal) things.
I think Damian and I have been to seven counties this weekend. I have a few photos from the phonecam, but I’ll upload those later with explanations of their silliness.
