Now available from Newland Media on DVD - Seasonal Customs of England - The West Country Part 2
"The moment Wessex Morris Men rise to dance at dawn on May Day to the waking of Jack-in-the-Green at Ilfracombe and the frolics of the Hobby Horses at Padstow in Cornwall and Minehead in Somerset you will be swept along by this colourful pageant of fantastic West Country customs. Look out for the famous Helston Floral Dance, Abbotsbury Garland Day, the crowning of the Lustleigh May Queen and tap your toes to Maypole Dancing! Come Summer and towns are alive with unique fairs from Ale Tasting at Ashburton to the scramble for Hot Pennies at Honiton; while the end of harvest brings the mysterious Crying the Neck farming ritual. It's what makes England peculiar!"
