In action up a fierce slope in Saffron Walden
First proper pub stop at the Fleur de Lys in Widdington
Our stick box proudly on display
The dance called Galopede involves a bit of back bending
All teams in for Bonny Green Garters
And the Thelwall group included...
Next stop The Plough at Debden
Thaxted Men stand around whilst Westminster jump for joy
On to the Cock Inn at Henham for Lunch
The steak pie lunch blew our hats off
Back to Thaxted and the processtion to town...
...led by the musicians and Thaxted (Jasper visible 5th from left)
Thelwall bring up the rear
Finally entering the town square
In fact, a fairly packed town square
Which, as you would expect involved road closure...
Thaxted Guildhall at the top of the Town Square
Thelwall Morris Men's Show Dance was
"Thanks for the hat,Maureen"
Four of the six men in action
After all that it is time for eating
In between courses, judging by absence of knife and fork
Left side (as seen): Geoff, Rick, Steve, Jasper, Henry
Right side: Pierre, Bill, Malcolm David

Hats off and piled up
A parade to the church, led by the vicar of Thaxted
The team approach the entrance to the church, though only a few pass through the door
Some of these have a look at TYhaxted
Dancing outside the church until time to leave and set off on the 3.5 to 4hr drive home
