As I understand, although the Farington/St.Ambrose Walking Day was organised as a church event, it was founded to commemorate the return of US-grown cotton to the UK after the Civil War. In the original parade, a bale of US cotton on a horse-drawn cart led the parade. I'm not sure where I saw the article - it's quite some time ago.

never heard that one before Frank, must try and look it up, must be somewhere on the internet

Today you can't get the police permission and health and safety wont let you do what you want. Most Churches just walk around the Church property as my Church did last Sunday, a sign of the times.

same thing that's virtually ended the scouts st. George's day walk, police.
