The Morris Men come to town!

Yesterday evening we walked down to the Candlelight pub in Bishopswood as the Morris Men had come to town.  They were performing in the car park in front of the pub.

What a quaintly English tradition is Morris Dancing.  Grown men with bells on their legs waving white handkerchiefs in the air, and clacking sticks with each other.

These were the Taunton Morris Men who were doing their Summer tour of pubs and locals spots to stop and dance.  Mind you on a lovely evening, it’s a good excuse to sit outside the pub with a pint of best for Neil and a half a pint of cider for me.  I’m getting into these Somerset ways drinking cider.  It’s to be recommended.
