Spooky Goings On

There's something spooky happening at Lotherton Hall.


The Scarecrow Trail is back with clues around the house and estate leading to the super spooky scarecrows.


We didn't follow any clues and we didn't go in the house but we still managed to see lots of scary scarecrows.



I think this diver near the pond must have been here for some time.


A howling black dog was stalking the pet cemetery.


There must have been some apples left in the orchard after the recent Apple Day as this scarecrow has filled his trug.


There were skeletons in the woods.


There were giant spiders on the house.


The gardeners had turned into scarecrows.


One gardener was headless.


There were ghouls in the trees.


Even some of the visitors had turned into scarecrows.


A sign on the stable.


That doesn't look like a horse to me.


Skeletons trying to get into the house.


I'm not sure what these three were up to but there was a lot of spooky sounds coming from the temple.


Lotherton's Spooky Scarecrow Trail runs until the 5th of November.


Happy Halloween.

  1. Oh wow, those look fantastic! Oliver would love seeing these, he is obsessed with all things Halloween related, lol. Halloween is becoming such a big thing in the UK, it seems to overshadow Bonfire Night now, I suppose it's a bit more exciting that a stuffed Guy Fawkes on top of a bonfire lol.

    1. Children seem to love Halloween, I know my two did, though I think it's becoming even more popular now than it ever was. People seem to make much more of it. I don't ever remember trick or treating as a child.

    1. Lots of the gardens and houses near me are decorated wonderfully, Halloween seems to be a bigger event each year.

    1. We don't decorate for Halloween at all now there's just the two of us, I do like to see all the children enjoying themselves though.

  7. I like the traditional Halloween English style not the American Trick or Treat. What a wonderful display.

  10. I think it's great that places put on events such as these for children (and some adults!) to enjoy.
    Some of those masks are pretty scary.

    1. I do too. Lotherton put on some wonderful events, and most of them are covered in the annual membership, which I think is very reasonable.

  11. Now, this looks fun. If I were nearer I would certainly visit, the grandchildren would love it!
    Love the Skeletons trying to get into the house.

    Happy Halloween

    All the best Jan

    1. I think there were probably lots more which we didn't get to see, we found these just on our usual walk around the woods with Archie. I liked the skeletons too, and the ghouls in the trees.

  12. Goodness me! I wouldn't like to meet any of those in the daylight never mind in the dark!!
