At this time “peacegging” was on its last legs at Ramsbottom, where it had been carried on to a great extent. One hundred or more persons were dressed in the most grotesque fashion , whilst others went to the other extreme - the most beautiful to behold. The Grant's of Ramsbottom (the Cheeryble Brothers) of Dickens well-known “Nicholas Nickleby”, presented a sovereign to the most tastefully dressed person. Capering and dancing was in full swing with the music and the Whipper-in had a very long whip to make the job seem more complete.
