Poppy Display - Kildwick Fair 2018

In recent years the local knitting group has produced some wonderful display pieces for the Kildwick Summer Fair - there was a knitted canal in 2016, to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal; and a knitted meadow in 2017. This year, to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War 1, the group produced their most ambitious and architectural piece yet - a "weeping poppies" display, in wool.

Here are some photographs taken on the day of Kildwick Fair, in June 2018, and the day after.


And here are a few more, taken by Marian McIntyre on a bright, sunny, afternoon a few days later.
