A Newsman's Notebook: PLOUGH MONDAY TO BE CELEBRATED AT TOLLERTON WITH MUMMERS' PLAY
*Nottingham Evening News, 20th Dec.1948, No.19654, p.3 b-c
Mr.A.H.Brown, of Hall Farm, Tollerton, told the reporter that he and his assistants plan to repeat the mummers play on Plough Monday which was revived the previous January. It had previously been revived in 1922, after a lapse of a century, but was discontinued during the war.
The article quotes the "Gentleman's Magazine" for Dec 1872 that men yoke themselves and draw a plough about with music. 150 years earlier the money was to pay for keeping the "plough light" lamp burning in the parish church throughout the year"
