"Memories of Newark" [Plough Monday at Caunton]
Nottinghamshire Local History Council Collection, Notts. Archives Office, Com. 28th Apr.1963, Ref.DD_121/3/13
One of 16 essays entered for a competition. It is a historical description of bygone Newark, but not really from personal memory. It includes the following passage;
"I do remember Plough Boys calling at my home to 'act their little piece' as they put it. I saved the Plough Monday Play at Caunton and gave it to Mr. Maurice Barley MA, of Nottingham University."
[A manuscript text of a Caunton play dated 1954 is in the M.W.Barley Collection. There was clearly an intermediate collector, who is not identified.]
