Mossley Whit Walks

The annual Whit Walks take place in Mossley on Whit Friday (the Friday that follows Whit Sunday). After a service of witness in the Market Place, members of all the churches process through the town accompanied by marching brass bands.
The town has a holiday feel for the day, with many businesses being closed and the pubs doing brisk business. In the evening, the Whit Friday Band Contest takes place. Whit Friday is celebrated in this way in Mossley and around the Saddleworth area.

  1. I've got a 1919 Whit Walk on Old Hyde today. Good to see Mossley keeping the tradition alive.
