Villagers in Uphill did themselves proud by creating fantastical creatures and film favourites for the annual scarecrow festival.

Scenes from Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and The Beankstalk and Sleeping Beauty were brought to life.

Stewart Castle, chairman of Uphill Village Society, said: "Despite the rain on Sunday, nothing dampened the enjoyment of the hundreds of visitors who joined residents view the village's 13th great scarecrow festival over the weekend.

"With characters as diverse as Disney princesses to dementors from Harry Potter, there was something for everyone to enjoy.
