I have just been reading a book about long distance walking and came across the following -

'In 1599 a former friend of William Shakespeare, Will Kemp, Morris- danced the 127 miles from London's Royal Exchange to Chapelfield in Norwich. With rest days and delays (snow blocked his way at Bury St Edmunds) the journey, celebrated in Kemp's 'Nine Daies Wonder,' took a month. (In 2000 a Morris team danced a day off Kemp's record).

I was wondering -

1. Who were the Morris Team in 2000 who beat Kemp's record ?
2. What is the record for Long Distance Morris Dancing?
