SKU: 1058 Category:


(P W Randell)  Explores the leisure pursuits in Bruton between about 1500 and about 1900.

When life was a constant struggle for survival, and was dominated by grinding toil, any moment of leisure was a welcome relief.  The weekly market, twice yearly fairs and the annual feast were a time of recreation and enjoyment, often to excess.
