The “Pumpkin House” of Slindon in West Sussex

Robin Upton, a Sussex farmer, has decided to celebrate the harvest season by erecting a 16 foot-tall “house” of pumpkins in memory of his late father, Ralph. He has created a rural scene of veggies in a wheelbarrow in the rolling English countryside. The “Pumpkin House” of Slindon in West Sussex is made from over 700 yellow squashes, green marrows and orange pumpkins. He called on the local community to donate enough squashes to carry on his father’s tradition of building a pumpkin house each year. (Andrew Hasson / Barcroft Media)
