This map shows all the locations indexed in the Nottinghamshire List of Folk Plays & Related Customs (Millington & Jones, 2000-2018). The vast majority of the locations are places where folk plays and/or Plough Monday customs were observed. There are, however, a number of other customs such as Shrove Tuesday and May Day that are also represented.
In geographical terms, the List covers plays and customs that took place in Nottinghamshire, appeared in publications published in Notts, or were collected by Notts-based researchers. In general, when a source includes both Notts and non-Notts plays, all the locations have been indexed. There are a few additional non-Notts plays arising from the TDRG cooperative indexing scheme on which the list was original based.
The outline map shows the national range of the Bibliography most cleary. However, the zoomed in interactive Google Map better illustrates the distribution within Nottinghamshire and its neighbouring counties.
