For nearly 100 years the 'Hoppings ' on Newcastle Town Moor has been the most important event in the travelling showman's calendar. This unique event began as a Temperance Festival but generations of Geordies have brought to it every year a wilder summer excitement.

DONALD SINDEN visits the parish churches of Melbourne, Stewkley and Kilpeck.
