Whitby: Old Town tradition continues with annual Penny Hedge Planting Ceremony https://tavistockdevon.com/whitby-old-town-tradition-continues-with-annual-penny-hedge-planting-ceremony/ Thu, 26 May 2022 05:00:00 +0000 https://tavistockdevon.com/whitby-old-town-tradition-continues-with-annual-penny-hedge-planting-ceremony/

There are only two occasions when the annual harborside ceremony, which dates back to the 12th century, has not taken place – and the coronavirus lockdown was one of them.

However, yesterday at 9am, on the eve of Ascension Day, the ceremony of the Horngarth, or the planting of the Penny Hedge, took place on the east bank of the River Esk and was overseen by the Bailiff of Fyling Court Leet mansion, which since 1999 is Lol Hodgson.

Register to our daily newsletter

Legend has it that the act is part of a penance served to three hunters and their descendants forever, for the murder of a hermit/monk on the outskirts of the town of Eskdale.

The Penny Hedge is built in Whitby Harbor below Church Street by Lol Hodgson, the Manor Bailiff of Fyling Court Leet and Tim Osborne, Chairman of The Staintondale Hunt.

Whitby Regatta: The Sandsend to Whitby swim set will be relaunched for the first time in over…

Mr Hodgson was joined by Tim Osborne, the chairman of nearby Staintondale Hunt, who acts as horn blower to signal the end of the ceremony. There was a good turnout, with people from as far away as Hastings traveling to Whitby specifically to observe the ancient custom.

Mr Hodgson said: ‘It’s hugely important that we keep these traditions moving – it’s vital. It was done before me and when I landed the job of Usher of Fyling Manor, I also landed this one – it’s as simple as that.

The hazel tree is used annually for the hedge and cut from the ground inside the mansion, where the hunt would have taken place, with nine vertical and nine horizontal stakes, plus four side posts.

Crows lined the harbor along Church Street to watch the construction of the Penny Hedge in a centuries-old tradition that dates back to the 12th century. Lol Hodgson is responsible for carrying out the lore and is joined by Tim Osborne.

However, it is always worth putting in a spare bet, added Mr Hodgson who also had his say on recent debates that suggest the story is not true.

Mr Hodgson added: “We always have a spare, we learned the hard way to always bring a spare. Sometimes you get eight and hit a rock with the ninth, but there was no problem with that today, but we broke one.

“I can understand the talk of folk customs and I’m not saying it’s not true, but the country is built on legend and how can anyone argue? We need to have light moments with life as it is now.

Whitby Community Choir closed the ceremony by singing The Famous Penny Hedge.

Tim Osborne, the chairman of the Staintondale Hunt, joins the Penny Hedge planting ceremony and acts as the horn blower at the end of the traditional and long-running ceremony.

The origins of the planting of the Penny Hedge date back to 1159 and according to Lionel Charlton’s ‘History of Whitby Book II’ (1779) began with a series of events on October 16 of that year, but Ascension is chosen for the ceremony as a time of year when the tides are low.

A group of men gathered to hunt and chased a boar to a hermitage where it died. The monk closed the door to the hunters but they killed him and he died soon after. As he lay dying, he forgave them the act if they had to perform penance, which meant they had to bring hazel stakes to the River Esk and build a hedge to withstand the tide.

Penance was paid in the 1980s with the last family involved, but Whitby Town Council asked Fyling Court Leet Manor to carry on the tradition.

Nine stakes are driven into the mud on the banks of the Esk and nine woven with Hazel intertwined and the hedge is said to withstand three tides.

Two Chatteris Organizations Benefit From Ancient City Charity https://tavistockdevon.com/two-chatteris-organizations-benefit-from-ancient-city-charity/ Wed, 30 Mar 2022 14:00:00 +0000 https://tavistockdevon.com/two-chatteris-organizations-benefit-from-ancient-city-charity/

Two good local causes have benefited from donations from a charity whose roots date back to the 16th century.

The Court Leet is a Chatteris charity that raises money from the income from the land it rents, then uses the money for general benefit and the betterment of the town.

Generations of people from Chatteris have been involved in the charity and a look at its minutes will reveal many surnames still present in the town today.

Court Leet Estate checks presentation of £2,000 to Chatteris Christmas Lights appeal and £2,000 to Salvation Army. (55793188)

Leet is a Danish word and Court Leets was mentioned in the Doomsday Book and consisted of 24 jurors, one for each acre of land.

However there would be one notable fact is you look back at the past records of the charity and that is the lack of names of women as they were not allowed to be directors of the charity charity before the 1980s and now the charity has its first female president Hayley Sizer, who was elected earlier this year.

And on Tuesday (29), Hayley and the other trustees gathered outside the Salvation Army stronghold in East Park Street, to hand over £2,000 each to two local groups.

Hayley Sizer presents the check to Chris Savill and Reg Tibbitts of the Chatteris Christmas Lighting Committee.

The first went to the Salvation Army for its new minibus, which will be used to transport the elderly and vulnerable and the other went to the Chatteris Christmas Lights Committee for this year’s annual display.

Hayley said: “It’s an honor to be the first female chair of the charity. We have a long history of helping good local causes around the city, but organizations and groups may not know not that we have money to give.

“So we would love to hear from any group or organization that benefits Chatteris so that we can help them as well.”

Hayley Sizer presents the check to Salvation Army's Gerald Day.
