[Warrington Guardian] 16 August 1873
Extracts from the Press Report
This festival was announced on Saturday last by a number
of gaily dressed men going round the parish morris dancing.
Between one and two o'clock a small, but very neat and
well build rushcart, preceded by the Lymm brass band playing in their
merriest strain, started from the house of Mr. W. Mantle, where it had
been built, and perambulated the parish and outlying districts.
As this is the first rush-cart for several years past, and it has been
built in the new parish of Oughtrington, it behoves the inhabitants of
Lymm to take a more lively interest in the matter if the old-fashioned
custom, now restored, is to be continuued.
