A HISTORY of BINGHAM [Plough Monday]
Bingham, Bingham Church School, 1954, p.53

In the section on "Old customs" the author says of Plough Monday in Bingham, Notts.; "The Plough Monday play was a particularly interesting event and many of the present older inhabitants of Bingham took part in it. An attempt to revive the play here is being made."

Other "customs" mentioned are; Hue and Cry, Beating the Bounds, and visiting the Stones on Parson's Hill on Shrove Tuesday.

The name of the compiler as given on the title page is incorrect. It should be Adelaide L.Wortley as given on the dust jacket.
