Letter dated 2/7/82 from Mr.W.Thompson, the landlord of the Butcher's Arms, West Halton. He wrote that the building itself is over 350 years old and has been a pub for well over 100 years but he has no knowledge of what occurred prior to 40 years previously. However he sent a photograph of the West Halton Plough Jags outside Normanby Post Office dated 1898 which has 19 men in costume. He wrote that Plough Jaggers still go round every Christmas period, entertaining in the pubs and clubs and on the saturday they usually give a show in the main shopping centre in Scunthorpe.
