Norwick Up Helly Aa Galley Shed

Charlie Priest very kindly allowed me access to the Norwick Up Helly Aa Galley shed to photograph the Galley & associated UHA stuff. The galley's name is Farfarer and is kept for the festival each with a secondary galley being burnt. The Norwick UHA is usually on the last Saturday in February each year and started in the mid 1980's.

An interesting shield from a previous Norwick UHA. This is identical to the Nesting & Girlsta UHA Jarl Squad shield from 1992 - except that the Raven is flying to the right on this shield, whereas in the Nesting shield it is flying to the left - a little co-operation between the two UHA's.
