"Merrie England": Tim Walker Shoots English Folk Culture for Vogue UK July 2011. "The Hunting of the Earl of Rone" folk tradition. Each Spring Bank Holiday the Devon village of Combe Martin is consumed with the pursuit of a masked man wearing a necklace of sea biscuits. According to the legend, the prisoner is the second Earl of Tyrone, an Irish renegade who was shipwrecked in 1607 before being captured by grenadiers. In today's re-enactment he is shot at and drowned for our entertainment.

Strawboys - The true mummers go with their madcap revelry at Christmas and celebrate the winter solstice in the way of always. Strawboys in straw dress go out to weddings all through the year. Wrenboys go out on St. Stephen's night. It's important to know the difference.

Straw Bear Day    Many of our modern holidays are based on ancient pagan traditions. Thankfully, we’ve edited out a lot of the violence and human sacrifice parts. One that manages to persist to this day is the Straw Bear. Originally a German tradition, one of the most interesting places to see a Straw Bear is the British town of Whittlesea on Straw Bear Day
