At the beginning of July decorated flower pots start to pop up all over Settle. No-one knows where, exactly when or even what the many participating businesses and residents will create, apart from the fact that they'll all be made out of flower pots.
By around the 15th July all the pots will be in place, and visitors are then also able to pick up Flower Pot Trail sheets for £2 from local businesses, each with around 50 varied educational and entertaining questions aimed at all ages, relating to the flower pot creations. All the flower pot creations will stay in place until around the first weekend in September.
Each year the level of creativity increases, with Settle residents seemingly trying to outdo each other with their imagination and flower pot engineering talents. Dinosaurs, tractors and all manner of characters are likely to appear. You can find many of them, just wandering around but it's worth buying the trail leaflet to be sure you don't miss any of them, as the trail expands every year and many will be off the beaten track.
