Today I spent a very enjoyable easter saturday in backup watching the Britannia Coconutters Morris Dancers, in Bacup.
Without going into great detail, they are a unique bunch of men who perform their annual ritual though the streets of backup and the adjacent villages.

Great to see an old tradition being kept alive, despite the threats of a ban from the local council who took safety to an unacceptable and pointless level.
Looking forward to next year already - particularly if the same weather can be arranged.
