This year the theme is musicals from the world of stage and screen, and so the scarecrows will each represent a song from or the title of a musical.

The Scarecrows will be mainly found in the village centre with some near the crossroads and others down Pingle Lane.

A circular trail will offer those taking part a pleasant walk. Trail guides with clues, which cost £2, will be available from Delph Post Office, Library and other outlets in Delph and Saddleworth.

The annual Scarecrow trail is organised by the Delph Community Association and all money raised goes towards community projects such as the maintenance and improvement of the Chapel Gardens.

Several prizes for those who identify the most scarecrows have been kindly donated by local businesses which include the Old Bell Inn, the Millgate Arts Centre and King Street Hair and Beauty in Delph.

Last year, the people’s favourite scarecrow was ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ at The Old Bell Inn.
