On Saturday we went to Sowerby Bridge to see the Rushbearing parade
It was very good and we came to the conclusion its a bit of an excuse for a pub crawl. Each time they stopped it was at a hostelry and those pulling the part partook of an alcoholic beverage. By the time they left the Station stop they were not pulling the cart as carefully.
I bought a badge
And we watched the dancing
Traditional dancing is often portrayed in England as a figure of fun and derision but I really enjoyed it
On Sunday John came back from the allotment with this bounty
This coming weekend and the following one is the Saltaire Festival
On the 10th there a Craft Market and the following week end the food market. Something to look forward too.
