At the Railway Inn, Culham, with Towersey Morris

A beautiful early summer evening on May 15th at the Railway Inn, Culham, with our old friends at Towersey Morris.

The Railway Inn is appropriately named. As you can see, it’s right next door to Culham Station. Here we are getting the evening underway with Sidesteps.

Cry Havoc was originally formed by a Towersey dancer, and we share a lot of repertoire. Here’s two sets from Havoc and one from Towersey dancing Constant Billy.

What the photos don’t show is the stiff competition from a passing freight train about one minute into the dance.

For the rail buffs, I think this was 672J early in its journey from Didcot to Mossend Euroterminal in Lanarkshire.
