Notes on a visit to Mr. Bernard Stockdale, age 85 at Nether Langwith, Mansfield. The script received from Miss Simpson, had been passed on by his sister and had been written down about 2 years previously, before his recent stroke. He could still quote large portions of the text in line with what had been written down. The mummers' play had been performed by boys from 11 to 13 years old. They had a group of five including himself and Sid Ashmore. They used to perform in the lodges round the Welbeck estate, in various houses, the pub and various quarters in the abbey. An older side in Cuckney used to go out doing the Owd 'Oss.
