MISCELLANEOUS NOTES ON NOTTINGHAMSHIRE AND DERBYSHIRE FOLK DRAMA RECORDED BY PETER T. MILLINGTON: HUCKNALL Notts SK 5349
Brief note as follows:-
"Lawrence Platt of the Nottingham Traditional Music Club stated that a
'travesty' of a plough play was still performed in Hucknall (1970)."
[At the time this record was noted, we were not really aware of non-play Plough
Monday customs. So it is possible that this custom could have been a simple
house visiting custom.]
