St. Stephen’s Day

St. Stephen’s Day in Cleveland, as indeed all England over, is devoted to hunting and shooting, it being held that the game laws are not in force on that day.

Wm. Henderson 1879


In Fylingdale parish, near to Ramsdale Mill,

Bold Raynard was headed all up a steep hill;

There were many employed in cutting the rocks,

But they threw down their tools and they followed the fox,

While the hills and the valleys did oft-times echo,

And resound to “Hark, forward! Tally-ho! Tally-ho!”

Frank Kidson. 1891
