There’s a 35 Foot Tall Straw Dalek Towering Over The British Countryside

big damn straw dalek

For more than 10 years an ice cream shop called Snugbury’s near Nantwich in Cheshire has done a large themed straw sculpture. This year, they chose this huge Dalek to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.

It even has a moving head and gun, not to mention audio.

It was designed by Mike Harper who, along with a team of volunteers, dedicated approximately 700 man hours to create the straw sculpture.

Plus, Snugbury’s has created a ‘DaLICK’ cone and are donating a portion of the proceeds to Cancer Research UK.

I want to go to Cheshire now, please.

Check out more pictures after the break to get an idea of just how big this thing is.
