The dates of the next festival are 8th to 16th August 2019. During the festival the car park is open 9.30a.m. to 4.30p.m each day, all week.
We use all the National Park car parking spaces for disabled visitors during scarecrow week. This means that many of the spaces are not the regular disabled bay width. Please do choose your parking space carefully, allowing those people who need the wider spaces to use them.

If you park in the disabled parking spaces in the Yorkshire Dales National Park car park, the whole trail is on surfaced roads around the village - apart from the gravel path up a slope to the church. The trail is 3km from the main car park and a bit less from the disabled parking in the National Park car park.

The upper part of the route (past the Kings Head pub) is uphill, but it is not very steep - and it can be missed out if you don't like the look of it. Wheelchairs with helpers to push should be fine, as should disability scooters. Self-propelled wheelchair users will need to be fit to tackle this part of the trail.

Villagers do put chairs and benches out for visitors to rest for a while, as they wander round. It is actually quite fun to sit and people watch, even if you don't really need a rest!

The Village Hall, where we serve our delicious refreshments, is also wheelchair accessible, although the only step-free access is via the car park entrance on Far Lane. There are also disabled toilets available at both the Hall and the Parks car park.
You should have no problem with pushchairs on the trail route. The main car park is a grassy field, so you might need to drop-off your pushchair at the gate, then head off to find a parking spot. Our marshalls will always help out.
Somewhere between one to two hours, but it does depend on how fast you walk, and how many photos you stop to take.
We welcome well-behaved dogs which are used to crowds and on a lead. There are dog waste bins around the village so please do clear up after your dog.
There are public toilets at the start of the scarecrow trail, at the village end of the National Park car park. If you need to spend a penny on route, the pubs, the village hall and some of the cafes also have toilets, but please do buy something or make a donation if you use these facilities.
