Hello,

I am someone who actually went to the Gaggs Hill fair, with my dad, when I was very young.

From my memory, it seemed to be travellers who brought the fair, so I think gypsies, but that could just be my impression.

They had all the usual rides expected and stalls where you could win prizes like coconuts (I know, how the prizes were sought after!!)

The hill is exactly where the previous submitter said, where the Police Custody Suite is sited today.

I remember Gags Hill Fair, used to go every year from around 1964, very muddy when it rained. It was Wallis's fair,. Can anyone remember the fair that arrived every year at Moreton,used to be by the cafe?

Remember the fair and now and again a circus. Helped at the circus by humping bails of hay and cleaning up and then was told to do one when we went to get paid, b.....ds, we were only kids. Also remember in later years there was blue murder at the Pacific when there was some bother between the customers and the travellers. They came back with the grannies and everyone else all armed with cudgels, spanners, sticks, you name it. The lads in the Pacific did a runner, wisely. It was all long ago so can't rememeber what it was about but it caused gales of laughter in the retelling.

Before Gags Hill was cleared there used to be a scrappy there, and it was a big 'un too. The Beaufort end bit used to be swampy as well, with reeds and plenty of aquatic wild life there. Then they cleared the yard and sorted out the swamp or perhaps marsh, and then the fairs and circuses started coming up there.
