In the N.W. of England lies an old village known as Low Moor which grew up along the banks of a river.
The banner proudly presents the “ANCIENT ORDER OF BACON EATERS”, depicting a scene with a farmer and a local, conversing outside a cottage with two fine pigs in the foreground.
Many of the villagers were mill workers. Their cottages often had a pig sty in the yard. This led to them being nicknamed 'Low Moor bacon eaters'. For many years the nearby town of Clitheroe held a torchlight procession in the Autumn. Low Moor always sent 'Percy the pig', the Gas Works processed their Gas Works Dragon.
