Thanks to Margaret and for her comments and Iain for the warning!! I have
to recap The Abbottswell Jig [from the Peterhead 25th Anniversary Book] for
a Branch dance. I was aware of the minicrib but when recapping I feel I
should always refer to the original instructions wherever possible.
If anyone out there has an original I would still very much appreciate a

Yes it does - except for the poor entry into the ladies' chain for first
