Thousands of people are expected to descend on Kettlewell for one of its biggest annual events.

The Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival, which originally started in 1994, is running from today until 20 August.

Once again, every corner of the village has been covered with scarecrows, from funny ones and children's favourites to topical characters and major masterpieces with moving parts.

This year, the trail for children is based on 'Historical Characters', whilst the theme for the adult trail is 'Rock and Pop Icons'.

All proceeds from the event will go to Kettlewell Primary School, the village hall and St Mary's Church.

Cakes, sandwiches, soups and other refreshments will be served in the village hall every day, with the profits making up a large part of the fundraising effort.
