Baghill Green, Gypsy Caravan or Vardo (West Ardsley) (2 comments)
Colour imageAugust 1965. This gypsy caravan or vardo parked on Baghill Green belongs to Tommy Gaskin, a traveller camped at Lee Gap Fair. It is an example of a Bowtop Vardo which has a front door and rear window. An arched wooden frame supports the weather proofed canvas. Painted decoration has been added to the woodwork and there are gaily coloured curtains and a vase of flowers at the entrance. The Vardo was built by Bill Wright at his yard in Spibey Lane, Rothwell Haigh. Tommy Gaskin, the owner, also built and painted wagons. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
