Longnor Wakes

Traditions thrive in Longnor. Longnor Wakes began on Sunday with a service of celebration in St.Bartholomew’s Church, with the Hollinsclough Silver Band playing. Then a procession through the village singing ‘Onward Christian Soldiers’ to the well, to bless the well, decorated with this year’s well dressing marking support for Manchester, symbolised by the bee and the blue of City.
There are events through the week and Longnor Races on Thursday – Longnor Sports
