Goathland Plough Stots Yorkshire County dance team performing ancient ceremony of dancing before every house in village of Goatland, Yorks. The Goathland Plough Stots are a rare example of a once widespread rural tradition that acknowledged the importance of the plough and celebrated it with sword dancing, music and folk plays. Similar traditions are known to have existed in other parts of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Northumberland, where they were known as the 'Plough Boys', 'Bullock Lads', 'Ploo Jags' (plough Jacks) and the 'Fond or Fool Plough'.
