A GENUINE MIDDLEWICH WITCH (MIDDLEWICH CARNIVAL 1973)
First published on Facebook 28th May 2011
Here, as promised, is that picture of a genuine Middlewich Witch, pictured at the Carnival of 1973 and treating the idea of being a Middlewich Witch with the reverence it deserves. The other lady is a walking advert for Mr Kipling who, you'll recall, did make exceedingly good cakes. Mr Kipling was part of the same company which owned RHM Foods (now, like much else, consigned to history). The Carnival that year was held on what had been the grounds of Middlewich Manor, so these two happy souls are sitting not too far away from where I'm sitting typing this - the difference being that they're in the middle of a field and I'm in the middle of a housing estate. That's what 38 years can do. Does anyone know who these ladies are? This photo was first published on Facebook. The original feedback is below.
