Dr Turbevilles

Dr. Turberville’s tend to go dressed as pirates when dancing in Swanage.

Dr Turberville’s Morris is a mixed Morris “side” or team originally from Crewkerne in Somerset, UK, now can now be found at Somerton in Somerset. Their names is from the most famous son of Crewkerne, the celebrated oculist Dr. D’Aubigny Turberville.

They dance English Cotswold Morris dances from the villages or “traditions” of Wayford, Hinton-in-the-Hedges, Ilmington, Bampton and Wells.
