Sid­ding­ton Corn Dol­lies

Country Living (UK) - - A Month In The Country -

Ev­ery Oc­to­ber, un­der the tim­bered arches of All Saints Church in Sid­ding­ton, Cheshire, hun­dreds of corn dol­lies are hung up to mark Har­vest Fes­ti­val. Made by oc­to­ge­nar­ian res­i­dent Ray­mond Rush, the dis­play con­tin­ues a tra­di­tion held for thou­sands of years, with the fig­ures evok­ing the ‘spirit of the corn’ and the hope of a fer­tile new crop.
