TICKHILL'S TRADITIONS [Plough Blessing and Plough Monday]
18th Jan.1946, Vol.50, No.2773, p.3 c
Describes the revival of the "Plough-lights" ceremony of "Blessing the
Plough" in church on the Sunday before Plough Monday at Tickhill,
Notts. Vaguely links this to an older plough trailing custom. Ringing the
"Pancake Bell" each Shrove Tuesday is also mentioned.
