A salvage yard turned super creepy mannequin cemetery is opening for Halloween

Want to be thoroughly creeped out this Halloween?

There’s not much we can think of that’s creepier than a mannequin graveyard.

Roz Edwards lovingly restores thousands of dumped dummies to sell or hire out to events.

Now, she’s using a whopping 20,000 butchered shop mannequins to fill a whole ‘cemetery’ as a spooky season attraction.

The 49-year-old transformed the salvage yard in Fulbeck, Lincolnshire into a ghoulish scene full of battered dummies in various states of disrepair.

The bold are being invited to take her ‘Awful Halloween Walk’ over the October half-term.

Most of the mannequins featured on the walk have limbs missing while one unnerving display shows several child dolls surrounding a mannequin in a blonde wig and hockey mask.

Other dummies have been covered in plastic and tied to trees, posed unnaturally in wigs and dresses, or covered in fake blood while holding up the heads of dismembered mannequins.

Roz, who once hired a stack of dummies to none other than Lady Gaga for a music video, is charging £23-a-head for tickets to the 10-minute walk which also features a horror movie show.

She said: ‘[Tickets are] being sold in pairs because it is safer to walk around a mannequin graveyard with two people.

‘We’re already almost completely sold out.

‘We’re really looking forward to a very scary Halloween.

‘It’s quite eerie when you drive through the yard and there are models some without arms or heads piled up all around you.’

Former retail consultant Roz owns even more than the 20,000 mannequins featured on the walk and sells them for as much as £600 each.

She previously lived in Malawi for ten years but found her business on the brink of failure when the recession hit.

These days, she says she’s ‘known as the mad mannequin woman’, and she regularly puts on Halloween-y attractions.

She previously invited fans to a ‘drive-thru heist’ where they could pay £50 to nab as many mannequin body parts as they liked in 15 minutes.
