Visit to Mr Leslie Strutt and Mr Fred Strutt, Hollytree Cottage, Oxton, sons of the cousin of Babs Strutt. They said that Babs Strutt is not now in a state to recall anything. They remember people telling them about Plough Monday in Oxton and how the farm lads used to get dressed up but don't remember anything about Plough Monday themselves. They suggested talking to Mr Charles Dowty, the former village blacksmith.
