WEST WITTON FEAST

 

The Doggerel

On Penhill Crags he tore his rags

Hunters Thorn he blew his horn

Cappelbank Stee happened a misfortune and brak' his knee

Grassgill Beck he brak' his neck

Wadhams End he couldn't fend

Grassgill End we'll mak' his end

Shout, lads, shout!

 

Burning Bartle

The ancient ritual of Burning Bartle takes place every year in the village of West Witton near Leyburn, North Yorkshire.

At 9pm on the Saturday night nearest to the 24th August (St. Bartholomew's Day) a larger than life figure is paraded down the village main street accompanied by repeated chants of the Bartle doggerel.

When Bartle reaches 'his end' in Grassgill, he is set alight, accompanied by songs and cheers from the assembled masses.

 

Fell Race

The West Witton Fell Race takes place on the Saturday evening of the night of Burning Bartle.  The fell race start is 6pm with registration from 5pm in the pavilion on the playing fields. Start is on Kagram and finish on playing fields. 

 

Bartle Mosaic Walk

Meet outside the Fox and Hounds public house in West Witton at 11.00am on Saturday, 24 August for an approximate 2 hour walk along the lower slopes of Penhill to discover the mosaic trail telling the tale of Old Bartle.  Suitable clothing for the day, dogs welcome with well behaved owners.

Refreshments will be available all day on Saturday, 26 August at St Bartholomew's Church where you will be able to enjoy some angelic floral displays alongside an exhibition on Angels in Art". 

St Bartholomew's Patronal Service will take place at 9.30am on Sunday, 26 August to which everyone is very welcome.
