Bill Barrett plays for a mixed Leeds/White Rose side on the Dales Tour in 1966. Visible in the set are Cliff Barstow and Bill Smith.

A mixed set at Threshfield during the Dales Tour in either 1965 or 1966. During these lean years for the club the Dales Tour could only continue because so many of our friends from other clubs came to shore the weekend with us.

These are virtually the only photographs we have of the Leeds Morris Men  dancing in the 1960's. If you have any in your collection that you are willing to share with us please let us know by emailing
