Born in 1972 with three founder members (Eric Pressley, Dave Wigfield and John (Mont) Auckland), the team learned its first dancers from Ivor Allsop (later to become Squire of the Morris Ring).

The team was set up to perform at the inaugural Wath May Welcoming Celebrations, which became in time, Wath Festival.  

Essentially the team was an off-shoot of Wath Folk Club (which also organised the May Welcoming Celebrations) and was not intended as a long term commitment.   46 years on, Wath Morris still perform at Wath Festival every year, but now also have a comprehensive dance programme throughout the year.

The team have performed the length and breadth of Britain, and overseas in Ireland, France and Holland.

Each year includes a local dance programme and several weekends away, some just for the team and some for the team and their families.
