Day Of The Long Knives

A traditional sword dance from North Skelton in Cleveland. Note the ever present menace of the terrifying bearded bumpkin. I'm pretty sure that this is the Betsy, or Fool, and he's wearing a costume especially for the dance, but you can never be sure and, in any case, he would make a great horror film villain. Imagine that outside your window.
