- On this day in 1879...
The Fox was opposite Dallow Lane on Dunstable Road and would later be used by LTFC as changing rooms.
“The fete in Dallow Lane. As a matter of course the wet weather materially interfered with the fete in Dallow Lane. Mr. Dudley, of “The Grapes” Inn, had provided a long programme of amusements, and, as soon as the gates were open, a large concourse of people, headed by the Dunstable Volunteer Band, proceeded to the field, but the rain soon came on so heavily that the refreshment booth was speedily crowded. The majority of visitors retraced their steps to the town, although a few, determined to see all they could, remained in the open air watching the performances of the various artistes, who carried out their programme under a covered pavilion. A considerable number of persons congregated under a booth outside the “Fox “ Inn, and, considering the watery state of the weather, the song which some jovial spirit truck up, “The Anchor’s Weighed,” did not seem much out of place. At all events, it met with a hearty response. Had it been fine, the fete would undoubtedly been a success.”
