There was a touch of magic in Gayton le Marsh as the village held its very first scarecrow festival last weekend.
The models took various forms and could be found dotted around the village ... with sorcery the most likely explanation.
Maybe their presence had something to do with everyone’s favourite wizard, Harry Potter, who was spotted a long way from Hogwarts.
Was Harry your highlight? If not, which scarecrow did you like the most?
