Ghost walk a great success at Boroughbridge Easter Walking Festival
One of the most successful walks during the recent walking festival organised by the Boroughbridge group was, with the help of the local Hightimers drama group, the annual Ghost Walk.
Members of the Hightimers portrayed characters from Boroughbridge local history including Lady Lawson Tancred who set up one of the first women’s land army groups during the first world war, Archie White who was a recipient of the Victoria Cross(pictured), The white lady of The Devils Arrows, three monolithic standing stones from just outside Boroughbridge, and a knight who was killed during the 1322 battle of Boroughbridge.
Taking place over the Easter break the new walks,working with the local community in the villages of Copgrove and Helperby were well received. Sadly the last day encountered terrible weather but still a few hardy souls turned out.
Plans are already in the pipeline for next years festival.
