Images and video links
Currently (and more or less always) in development.
This section is perpetually under construction. We have a large collection of photos spanning more than a century, and a few videos that have been digitized and passed on to the Morris Ring as the Arnold Woodley Collection. As time permits we will make a selection of this archive material available. In the meantime we have more recent photos and videos available below.
Photo collections available:
Current photo pages that are available
Photo collections still in preparation (after the site make-over).
Videos on YouTube:
Videos of recent Whitsun dancing are appearing on YouTube. Our thanks to our supporters for taking the time to capture and share those special days.

Archive film footage
YouTube contributor Bruce Wigney has posted some old footage of Bampton dating from the 1930s. A well-known Morris historian has suggested Whitsun 1938 as the date. The film opens with the floral judging (which still takes place) and at about 1 minute in you will see the 'Tanner Side' (our ancestors) dancing with the very recognisable Sam Bennett on fiddle. Jinky Wells' side follows.
