I.T.Jones Collection, Communicated 6th Feb.1981, Ref.K21-1

Questionnaire from Mrs Lilian Scott, age 61, from South Clifton, dated 6/2/81. She remembered seeing a play on Plough Monday in the years 1924-29 in the kitchen of her father's farm in Brant Broughton. Characters included the doctor, St George and possibly the devil. She understands that the play has been revived in Brant Broughton by Mr David Bagworth. At some time after 1929, she lived in Kingston in Cambridgeshire where the plough boys toured the village on Plough Monday, cracking whips at every house door and collecting money.
