Gloucestershire

An English county in the Cotswolds and therefore part of the Cotswold Morris Tradition. Gloucestershire is also known for Mumming and Wassail.

The curious custom of Church Clipping takes place at Painswick in September and Cheese Rolling at Brockworth at the end of May.

Gloucestershire was the roaming ground of Lemmy Brazil and the home of Old Swan Band. The well known Morris side called Gloucester Old Spot (actually a breed of pig) has inspired revival sides for many years and resurrected the Longborough tradition.
