LONG-DISTANCE walkers were welcomed to the Colne Valley with a display of dance and song.
Four ramblers are travelling from Lands End to John O’Groats to trace the state of traditional music in Britain.
The group arrived in Marsden this week and were welcomed with a display of dancing from the White Rose Morris Men of Gledholt; the Thieving Magpies from Marsden; Slubbing Billys based in Huddersfield and the Stockport Morris Men.
Around 100 people then enjoyed a night of folk music at the Carriage House in Marsden on Tuesday.
Andrew Titley of the White Rose Morris Men said: “The evening went well. The walkers have asked local groups along the route to organise folk evenings. They are filming the events to create an archive which will show the very healthy state of folk music in England and Scotland.”
Four ramblers from Devon set off from Lands End on April 1 and aim to reach John O’Groats by late next month.
