Scope and content

The date of August 25th 1972 is the date the newspaper article was published but Ethel Moss recalls “In the early part of the twentieth century, the fair in the Market Square was not the main attraction, it was the Horse Fair. A little before 6pm on the evening of August 24th a policeman would walk to the end of each main street. Then as the church clock chimed the hour, cheered on by the watching crowds, the show people with their caravans would race into the township to secure the best pitches in the Market Square.” This is a very detailed article about the horse sales and very well worth reading.
