Old Speckled Hen

Old Speckled Hen was started in 1992 and was named after one of the beers from the Morland Brewery in Abingdon.
The morris from Cheshire and Lancashire originates from the industrial towns. The costumes worn tend to be striking and the footwear will normally be clogs traditionally with irons nailed to the soles and heels. The dancing involves much stepping and the rhythm is accentuated by the clogs.
