A mix of a few shots taken this weekend in Uppermill. every shot I took was against the light.
Nice job! I wonder if my old boss is there (dancing!).
They come from all around the UK for the week end. Dancing drinking and pulling the cart around the villages. On Sunday they scatter the rushes before the service in Saddleworth church at the top of a very long steep hill. They spend the rest of Sunday dancing outside the close by pub and car park.
That is an effective composite. Not seen one done outside the postcard market and those don't usually blend.
I'm pretty sure he has been there in the past. He is an enthusiast.
I helped pull the first two of the new version. Mind you, there were only about a quarter of the men pulling than now. It were ‘ard, sithee.
There was an old feller pulling the first who had pulled the last of the traditional ones.
Look for the idiots in white trousers.
That's the old feller in the front.
Interesting old shots, They seem to have more men than spaces for them now. And there are 30 or so just joining in leading and following the pullers. They have more break men than you had pullers.
We were men in those days...
Another as they passed my house in Greenfield
