Chipping Campden - Scuttlebrook wake verse

1915
CHIPPING CAMPDEN
YE OLDE WAKE OF SCUTTLEBROOKE

The "Church and State" and Scuttlebrook Wake
Have into conflict come,
"This dreadful Wake it SHALL be stopped"
Says Leysbourne's 'Peeping Tom'.

We'll have a committee terror strike
At the root of this innocent fun
And make the promotors feel that we
Are like the German Hun.

They shall have their festival once more
And woe to those who say,
That Scuttlebrooke Wake for old times sake
Shall live another day!

So, wake

Scuttlebrook Wake - Chipping Campden

2nd June Scuttlebrook Wake

The Scuttlebrook Wake always follows on the next day after the Robert Dover's Olimpick Games.

There is a procession of the Scuttlebrook May Queen from Littleworth to the square, pulled on her cart by the Chipping Campden Morris Men, accompanied by her four attendants and a page boy.

She is followed by decorated floats and a fancy dress parade and all shops and houses along the route are encouraged to enter a window competition.
