Ecclesfield Plough Bullocks.jpg

Plough Monday was an old tradition that took place on the first Monday after the twelve days of Christmas. A ‘common plough’ was kept in the parish church for those in the community who did not own their own plough. It was blessed by the vicar, decorated and paraded around the parish by plough boys called ‘plough bullocks or ‘stots’. The custom was revived in the 1930s in Ecclesfield as part of the annual Hospital Parades.
