Brackley is one of only 7 Cotswold Morris sides listed by the Morris ring as ‘traditional’, and the only one to survive in Northamptonshire. The side can’t claim to have the earliest record, nor can it claim the longest continual existence. Nevertheless we have records dating back to the early 1700s, and there’s a strong local belief that the Morris Men were associated with the presentation of an engraved solid silver communion plate dated 1623. Each of the attachments below is a chapter in our long colourful story.
