Littleborough Rushbearing Festival usually takes place over a period of about 4 days, with the main events being on Saturday and Sunday, with the Rushcart parading from Hollingworth Lake to the Town Centre on the final day. It must be around 10 years since I did the whole route (I will add those images when I get a chance), and for various reasons I was due to make a return visit this year. I had attended the afternoon events in the town centre on a number of occasions, but not the whole route. Unlike the last time the Sunshine, which had been tormenting us for the previous several months, was absent this time and it was a bit gloomy at the start, but that wasn't such a bad thing. I didn't stay for the afternoon events, so maybe next year I will go back and do the other half, or better still, the Saturday events as well.
