Every Easter, Chalford, a local village has a scarecrow trail. People make scarecrows and put them in their gardens and lots of others come to visit. The maps cost £3.00 and there is a quiz to complete as well. Mr Clicky and me have done it in years gone by with the children, but now Miss Clicky is at her boyfriend's and Master Clicky is still in bed. We took the dog instead.
We started at the top of the hill and came across Olaf
and someone from Minecraft.
Chalford clings to the side of the Golden Valley, there are lots of little pathways in between the houses.
I loved this Toy Story collection.
Look at Bulleye's feet! made from plant pots. The locals must spend lots of time making the scarecrows.
Mr and Mrs Potato Head.
We carried on, looking down on roofs below us.
In the valley bottom we came across three crows.
The fisherman was fishing in the (to be restored) Stroudwater canal. I don't think he was catching much.
One of the locks which will be restored. As you can see there's not much water in it but one day....
From the bottom you can see where we're going to walk back up soon.
I liked the simplicity of this little girl.
Harry Potter on his broomstick.
And a lady having rest from gardening.
We need a rest as we walked back up little pathways with lots of steps. The dog was worn out and slept for the afternoon. I really enjoy the trail, we don't do it every year, but I am amazed at the inginuity of people.
Right now the sun is shining brightly and is set to stay for the week.
See you soon.......Clicky Needles.
