It was the gloriously sunny winter's day of the Grenoside Sword Dancer's annual traipse around the village back in early January.
Gathered with friends, we watched them perform on the village green with the world (well South Yorkshire anyway) spread out below and beyond
Caught up with them again after the pub - ruddy of face, oblivious of the freezing temperature and still dancing (them not us!)
