Elephant in Scarlet remembers 

Bringing in the harvest is celebrated in a number of ways in the UK. There are Harvest Festivals in churches, which can sometimes feature stunning displays of crops and bread, but there are also the signs in field all over the country that the harvest has been gathered. The old hayricks are long gone and in their place are the modern "swiss roll" hay bales, waiting to be picked up and stored.

Harvest time was so important in the twentieth century that is it the reason that the main school holidays take place in July and August - not because of the good weather, but because every hand, even those of schoolchildren, used to be required in the fields.

Elephant in a Cell

The Elephant is proud to live in Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard in Cell No 5. Keep an eye on our website and other social media for our TEA AT THE CELL BLOCK events.
