  • Abstract

    Mrs Beth Bond talks about how New Year meant more to her parents and grandparents than Christmas. The relatives all coming from Carlton House Farm and Woodhouse Farm for the New Years party. Her and her sister sleeping on straw in the back of the pony trap when coming back from the parties. Trap lamps. No cars on the road. The house at Larbreck [?] built 1721. Living on a farm they didn't have to go Pace egging. Dyed Easter eggs, coloured by onion rings, gorse flowers and cochineal. The Mummers Play at Kirkby Lonsdale. Going to dances, remembers the cry of the curlews when walking home. [end of side one]
