Hinderwell

Hinderwell Scarecrow Festival The name Hinderwell is derived from 'St Hilda's Well' in the village churchyard. It is said that St Hilda blessed this well and that she came here to pray in peace and quiet. Every year the village holds a Scarecrow Festival, with all kinds of unlikely scarecrow figures to be found. Spiderman was seen one year, climbing up a drainpipe to an upstairs window and the policeman with the speed gun by the 30 mph sign was very effective!
