I remember as a child -in the 1930s- being taken to Woodhouse Moor to see the big bonfire which was held there each year. It took weeks to build and a celebrity was invited to set it ablaze. Maybe my memory fails me, but I seem to remember that one year the honours were done by Amy Johnson the famous female flier. Can anyone confirm this ? She was a Yorkshire lass from Hull. There was also a Ox Roast.        Do "Feasts" still take place on Woodhouse and Holbeck moors? I am interested in any memories of Holbeck Moor. I lived in Fairfax Road pre -war and war years.
