Taeppas Tump

Tæppa’s Tump is a Ladies North West Morris side which was formed in 1981.

The name is taken from one of the area’s outstanding archaeological sites, the burial mound of “Tæppa” a Saxon chieftain who gave his name to Taplow, which is now a very pleasant village on the outskirts of Maidenhead. The burial mound was opened at the end of the last century and yielded a collection of Saxon grave goods, which are now in the British Museum and are second only to the Sutton Hoo Burial Hoard.

The dancers wear burgundy red skirts, white blouses and green aprons with decorated straw hats. Musicians wear white trousers, burgundy shirts/blouses and grey top hats with burgundy ribbons. The team also have green fleeces and jackets with their logo.
