Subject: RE: Folklore: Good Friday customs
We used to do the Abram Pace Egg Play in Lancaster on Good Friday while the Maritime Festival was on. Sadly the festival fell by the wayside and I have lost touch with the Abram team. As part of that 'tradition' one of our number was always kidnapped by the press gang and only released upon a payment to charity. We also used to partake in a few libations and always end up at the Pusser's rum promotion :-D

Heptonstall has another claim to fame that few people know about - Sylvia Plath is buried there!
