Today was to be the return of the much-loved Buckley Jubilee, after it was cancelled along with most events last year.

But as with most plans, things have had to be scaled back.

There would sadly be no parade, fun fair or large gathering through the town, which normally sees hundred turn out to take part or line the streets.

So as we look forward to a bigger and better return for the historic religious procession in 2022, we have selected just a tiny fraction of Buckley Jubilee photos from the Leader archives of years gone by.

What is evident is the faces of those taking part or watching, beam with joy, whatever the weather.

Do you have photos or memories from the Jubilee, which has now been a steadfast highlight on the calendar for more than 160 years?
