"Memories of Newark" [Plough Monday at Caunton]
Nottinghamshire Local History Council Collection,
Com. 28th Apr.1963, Ref.DD121/3/13
One of 16 essays entered for a competition. It is a historical description of
bygone Newark, but not really from personal memory. It includes the following
"I do remember Plough Boys calling at my home to 'act their little piece' as
they put it. I saved the Plough Monday Play at Caunton and gave it to Mr.
Maurice Barley MA, of Nottingham University."
[A manuscript text of a Caunton play dated 1954 is in the M.W.Barley Collection.
There was clearly an intermediate collector, who is not identified.]
[Nottinghamshire Archives' online catalogue gives Ref.DD/121/7 for "Miss" Crowden's essay.]
