Friday 28th June – Warcop Rushbearing – St Columba’s Church
Spectators Welcome – Help us celebrate and keep the tradition alive.  The school children procession begins at 2 pm from the Chamley Arms, and continues through the village to Eden Gate, turns around and heads back towards St Columba’s Church.  The Church service begins at 3.15 pm.
A centuries old tradition before churches had stone floors the floors were covered with rushes.  Each Summer the old rushes would removed and replaced with new.  The village children would carry the rushes through village, which would then be laid as anew floor covering.  Today the tradition carries on in very few villages in England.  We honour our tradition by parading crosses made from rushes, and crowns made with flowers through the village, which are then displayed in the church until the following year.
