Lammastide at Farlington ~ Sunday, August 18th
The Lammastide farming festival celebrates the start of the harvest. It was a church service for farming communities which largely died-out in the 1540’s; the latter days of Henry VIII’s reign.
But, St Leonard’s in Farlington is one of a number of churches in rural communities which has brought Lammas back into the church calendar. This year, the service will be on Sunday, August 18th at 10.30am and everyone is welcome to join us for this special occasion in the farming year ….. and get to taste a Lammas Loaf. Besides the Lammas Loaf, there will be other light refreshments in the Church or Churchyard after the service.
