' Adventures with my Puppets among West Country Villages'
By the Puppet Maker
Puppets naturalised themselves in England after their introduction from Italy before the days of the Tudors, and flourished until the eighteenth century. Like many other charming things, they fell out of favour, with the one exception of ' Punch and Judy', until recent years has seen a revival of interest in them.
Here is a puppet maker whose puppets perform throughout the West Country. Among their repertoire is the old mumming play of ' St. George and the Turkish Knight', a variant of which will be presented in Gloucestershire dialect.

Bryanston Parish Church was built in 1896 by the second Viscount Portman , and was consecrated as parish church in 1898, replacing the former church, which stands a little way from it. The church is situated by the river Stour in the middle of Bryanston Park, near Blandford, and is dedicated to St. Martin. It is built of the stones of the mansion which once stood where the church now is, and the chancel ceiling is composed of the ballroom floor.
