Rotting Concrete Hammersmith Flyover Still Inspires Morris Dance 50 Years On

By Sam Gibbs on at

Some good seems to have come out of the Hammersmith flyover shutdown, despite the traffic chaos -- the Hammersmith Morris Men have been able to bust out their moves on the bridge that inspired the “Hammersmith Flyover” dance some 50 years ago. Awesome.

Another one of those “only in Britain” things I'm afraid. And why on Earth you’d be “inspired” to choreograph a dance after gazing upon the rotting concrete monstrosity that is the Hammersmith flyover, Lord only knows. Apparently the Hammersmith Morris Men are “world famous”, and were particularly annoyed when Morris dancing was left out of the London Olympics opening ceremony. Outrageous indeed. [The Metro]
