Artist's Description

We enjoyed a great afternoon at the Colyford Goose Fayre … I expect Lynn and I will be adding a few pics of it as they are edited :)

‘Sir Thomas Bassett inherited the Manor of Colyton and Colyford in 1199. He obtained a grant from King John for a Fair at Colyford in 1207. This was for 7 days at Michaelmas and is commemorated today by the revival of the Colyford Goose Fayre which is held on the Saturday closest to Michaelmas. The Fayre is held in Springfield adjacent to Vineyard which is thought to be the site of the original fair’ information taken from www.seatonmuseum.co.uk/colyford

If anyone is interested in the Morris Men you might check out the movie ‘Morris: A Life With Bells On’ strange but good :)
