Runcorn Examiner, 14 August 1880, p.6

Extracts from the Press Report

Rushbearing Festivities at Lymm
The annual custom of celebrating rushbearing in the quiet and picturesque village of Lymm commenced on Saturday last, when the usual rushcarts perambulated several parts of the district.
The principal rushcart, drawn by four greys, started from the Spread Eagle, gaily decorated.
The lead was taken by the Lymm Brass Band and the attendant morris dancers.
Another rushcart started from the Jolly Thresher, drawn by four donkeys, and this was gaily decorated. The novelty of donkeys drawing the cart attracted large crowds of people to witness the perambulation.
