The grand carnival which takes place yearly in this
beautiful village commenced on Saturday last with the usual rush-cart
procession. The cart on this occasion was prepared by Mr. Bunce, of the
Bridgewater Arms, and Mr. Joseph Leah, of the Spread Eagle, in first
rate style : and about half-past ten, the procession started from the
first named house, attended by Mr. Morgan, the high constable of Lymm,
the usual retinue of Morris dancers, and a great crowd of people. It was
headed by the Lymm Volunteer band. Dinner was prepared at the
Bridgewater Arms to which, after perambulating the district of Statham,
all who had assisted in the dressing of the cart sat down.
After this procession had re-formed and visiting Broomedge., called at
the "Jolly Thresher;" then proceeded down Burford lane and by
way of Rush Green, home, stopping on the way at the houses of the
principal residents, whilst the band played.
