Derbyshire in Focus 2013
Castleton Garland Ceremony

Date taken 29/05/2013.

Over the years those that construct the Garland have moved away from the village, but they come together to celebrate the event.
It is a good feeling to be recognised and welcomed to share in this event, I was given a hand made walking stick in exchange for a framed photograph
I had taken at last years ceremony and I will treasure it.
The weather depleted the crowd this year, but those taking part braved the heavy downpours to make the day a success, I hope the young dancers
were given plenty of praise for their contribution in such conditions.
