roopoo The last of the Snaith Plough Stots (3) The last of the Snaith Plough Stots 05 Nov 00

This may be of limited interest, but it's my sad duty to report that Mr. Arthur Walker of Snaith died last week. I only found out this morning at church: his funeral was friday. I would have liked to have been there. I always promised myself I would when the time came. He was a very self-effacing man. Typical that I didn't find out until too late!

It is from him that I collected the Snaith dance, and the route it took in early January. He was often seen until recently, riding his bike in Snaith to do his shopping - and he was nearly 90! Luckily I taped my conversation several years ago with him. He was a fine old gentleman and our last link with the Snaith Plough Stots.
