Good Friday Demonstration at Conisborough

Conisborough , with his historical Castle and surroundings, a very popular rendezvous for Good Friday trippers, was not visited by so many holidaymakers as is usual.

For one thing the weather was wretchedly dull, rain falling at time, and this tended to keep hundreds of people away.

The Primitive Methodists of  Mexborough and district had their usual team in the Primitive Methodist Chapel at Conisborough , which was attended by 150 persons.

The Conisborough  brass band parade the village from their headquarters (Mr Addy’s, the Eagle and Child Inn), and wending their way to the Castle grounds when they played a selection of dance music during the evening.
