PLOUGH MONDAY [Plough Lights and plough trailing]
Worksop Guardian, *5th Jan. 1917, p.6 b
General article Plough Monday. It talks of plough blessing, Plough Lights, and ploughs being kept in churches before the Reformation. Afterwards this changed to secular plough trailing with a Fool and a Bessy. The gardens of people who did not give little or no money were often ploughed up. Quotes from an unspecified Lincs., source.
