    Redbornstoke Morris is a morris dancing group based in Ampthill, which is in the historic hundred of Bedfordshire called Redbornstoke. Bedfordshire Lace is a women's morris dancing group originally formed from the wives and partners of the men in the Redbornstoke team. Redbornstoke Morris drifted away from tradition and developed their own dances, while Bedfordshire Lace Morris became the first women’s Morris team in the county. Both teams were considered to be innovative as they challenged the traditional ideas of their time and over the years, they and teams like them have become a part of Morris tradition.
