The [1889] Rushbearing Festival
Warrington Observer, 17th August, 1889, p8


Extracts from the Press Report

This ancient festival was held at Lymm on Saturday...
In past years the festival was a great event in the annals of Lymm, but its glories seem to have departed, for now there is only a kind of "wakes" on a small scale, and a few troupes of "Morris Dancers" parade the village, and this year's festival passed off very quietly.

The rest of the report concerns itself with the Nonconformist Sunday school excursion to Bangor
