Oh What A Circus
by Parish Council on Friday 27 January 2012

Mrs Dorothy Hawley of Swanwick has kindly provided this picture of a circus which was held at Somercotes, which she believes was held on the Market Place. 

A Somercotes resident told us he can remember the elephants being brought through the village, having been walked from the Railway Station.  He thinks it was around 1958.

Can anyone give us more details about this event?  We would love to hear from you.
