  • Norham scarecrow competition

    by stephenshephard Written Oct 28, 2003

    A very recent local custom, the villagers of Norham have taken to competing to produce the best scarecrow. Scarecrows, usually on a humorous theme, are exhibited outside their shops and homes until the village fair on the August bank holiday each year.

    Norham is about 7 miles (11 km) southwest of Berwick-upon-Tweed near the Scottish border.

    Gentlemen prefer blonde scarecrows, Norham
