The Fair

Winteringham Local History and Genealogy

Winteringham Fair

Doris Shipp and her brother ride the swingboats at the fair which used to visit the village in the 1950s, and was erected in a field to the east of Low Burgage.  This may have been the final shout of the great Winteringham Fairs that had been a feature for almost 700 years!  There were also sideshows such as air-rifle shooting, and a coconut shy.  Sandra Clayton says that this is the only photograph that she knows of showing the fair.
