The walk carries on from the Mine and the roadway on Throwleigh Road, and over the top. Here you can see that the 400 or so people spread out can cover quite a lot of land!

This is one event I clean forgot to mention. This year was the seventh since the last beating of the bounds. Every few years, the folks would gather together and walk all the boundaries of the parish so that the foik of all ages would know exactly where the parish bounds were. On this day, we all wandered off to meet in the village’s middle, then walked off over Ramsley Mine, and up on to the moors.

This summer has flown by. Probably helped by the constant rain. All my readers will know that the summer of 1315-16 was the beginning of the Great European Famine, in which a significant number of people died. In one month, June 1316, ten percent of the population of Ypres died of famine.
Well, this year’s been pretty much the same. Rain, rain, and more ruddy rain. Except for the delightful Saturday in September, when the Morris sides were invited by Glory of the West, to join in their celebrations. So we did. And the sun shone for them!
