MISCELLANEOUS NOTES ON NOTTINGHAMSHIRE AND DERBYSHIRE FOLK DRAMA RECORDED BY PETER T. MILLINGTON: HUCKNALL Notts SK 5349
P.T.Millington Collection, Col. 1970

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.]
