Only one small item from Yorkshire at Common Ground: an obscure custom from Whitby. What about the maypoles? One famous one was (I hope still is) at Barwick-in-Elmet east of Leeds (www.hjsmith.clara.co.uk). It is rumoured that my father was a long time ago involved in stealing it and carrying it away to another village.
