Greensleeves Morris Men

Greensleeves Morris Men may be based in south-west London but they and their guests have been making an annual pilgrimage to the Chilterns every July since 1961. These weekends start and finish in Chipperfield with a tour round local towns on the Saturday. This year's stops were Chesham, Wendover, Tring and Dunstable Downs where passers-by were introduced to a variety of dances. Our photographs show stick and hankerchief dances from the Cotswold tradition and a rendering of the North Skelton sword dance from Yorkshire.
