WITH astonishing speed and efficiency, Ledbury's Mop Fair - also known as the Hop or October Fair - took shape in the town centre on Monday. 

Then, after two days of fun, thrills and games, it was packed up and on the road with the same remarkable gusto.

Talented Ledbury photographer Harold Sparrey was out with his camera to record the Mop's triumphant return after last year's cancellation.
