British crime story with folklore studies and a hobby horse, ring any bell?

Recommended Posts



I read that book in 1985, and i've been looking for it for quite some time now, without success.


Maybe I could get help in this forum?


It's most probably from an british writer…


It's the story of a woman in her late 50’s interested in folklore studies, who comes to a small english town preparing a ancient yearly festival, featuring various acts including wearing heavy armors and riding a hobby horse.


While she’s mingling with the people in that town, a crime is committed.



The decisive step of the subsequent police investigation is their finding out that it was actually her who was wearing the heavy armor during the festival, instead of the man who was supposed to do it, giving him a precious alibi…



Does that ring any bell?


Thank you for your help :)
