Scarecrows first came to Kettlewell in 1994 when a fund raising event was organized for the local school which serves much of Upper Whrfedale with its villages, isolated hamlets and remote farms. The enthusiastic response of parents and residents led to over 100 scarecrows appearing in gardens, open spaces, hidden corners and even on rooftops. The event was successfully repeated and, growing year by year,now attracts thousands of visitors over a nine day period in August.
