    A BIT ABOUT SOWERBY BRIDGE

    Favorite thing: Located about 3 miles west of Halifax, SOWERBY BRIDGE is in West Yorkshire and has been a crossing point on the Calder and Ryburn Rivers since the Middle Ages. For more than 200 years, it was a busy textile centre. Today, it is a flourishing canal hub with numerous pubs and restaurants. In 1996, a million dollar project created the deepest canal lock in the country at Tuel Lane. Tourists can hire narrow boats in Sowerby Bridge and cruise the full length of the Calder River.

    EYNSHAM MORRIS

    Eynsham Morris

    Favorite thing: Always a favourite with visitors to the Rushbearing Festivals, EYNSHAM MORRIS only dances its own dances in Cotswold style in smocks, breeches and red sash with hankies and sticks. It was wonderful to see them perform, as they danced and hit each others sticks in unison with the music consisting of an accordion and bongo drums.

    Favorite thing: After making their debut at last year's Rushbearing Festival. the HEBDEN BRIDGE HILL MILLIES again return for this year's Festival. An all female Cotswold side, they dance in maroon waistcoats and black trousers.

    MANCHESTER MORRIS MEN

    Manchester Morris Men

    Favorite thing: Manchester Morris Men have danced the traditional North West morris dances for well over 50 years, in many places and at all sorts of events, including the weekend Sowerby Bridge Rushbearing Festival. The MANCHESTER MORRIS MEN will be seen dancing in red and yellow sashes, blue cummerbund, black breeches with yellow piping, red stockings, Lancashire bell-pads, clogs and flowered bowler hats. They certainly were one of the crowd favourites in Saturday's parade.
