Charley Williams talks about the Wassailing tradition in the area sixty years ago. There would be about ten or twenty Wassailers and they would go out on the 5th and the 6th of January. No instruments, but when he went out singing the local carols with Gilbert and Claude Williams they would take an accordion.
