Long Rope Skipping
Long Rope Skipping is an old Sussex Tradition that used to take place at various locations throughout the county on Good Friday, now it only survives at Alciston.
In this photo the man on the left with the trilby hat has one end of the rope, there are three ladies skipping, and a fourth is about to join them, anybody can join in as the rope turns. The rope, as a blurred line, can be seen on the right hand side of the photo.
