Tolpuddle and all that.


Loyal Member
I was looking through the information that I have collected on my relations and those of the wife and was struck by the fact that in the early 1800's most of them worked farms. I wondered why they left the farm for the cities, looked up the 1800 and found the unrest that caused the Tolpuddle martyrs.
So for the first time I felt really conected to all that history I never listened to at school. Just goes to show we are not that far from real history.
