Wassailing in Tottenham

Today, Old Twelfth Night 19 January 2013, there will be wassailing the apple trees in the Old Orchard behind the Ferry Boat Inn in Ferry Lane N17 9N just east of Tottenham Lock.

Weather permitting morris dancing is planned from 6pm. The organisers say: “Children very welcome! Wear warm clothing, and bring hooters, pots & pans, drums etc.”

This could be a new Lea Valley custom. It might be short notice but it’s good to see the orchard being recognised.
