Robert Kilvert in Clyro - 18 October, 1870

from Diary of Francis Kilvert, 18 October 1870, page 83:

A wild rainy night. They are holding Clyro Feast Ball at the Swan opposite. As I write I hear the scraping and squealing of the fiddle and the ceaseless heavy tramp of the dancers as they stamp the floor in a country dance.
