The Kinsley Evictions Commemorative Guided Walk is being held this Sunday (8 June) in West Yorkshire.
It starts at 2pm at the Winding Wheel at the end of Railway Terrace, Fitzwilliam (just outside the entrance to Fitzwilliam Railway Station).
The Guide is local socialist historian John Gill.
The route takes in part of what is now Fitzwilliam Country Park and ends with a pint (or two) at the Kinsley Hotel.
All are welcome and there is no charge.
A reminder also that we have an event at the Red Shed, Vicarage Street, Wakefield on Saturday 21 June, 2-4pm. It is titled, "Hurrah to the Luddites: Challenging the Myths About Luddism." We have two speakers...Ken Rowley (ex Vice President of the National Union of Mineworkers) and Shaun Cohen (from the Ford-Maguire Society). Again there is no charge and a free buffet is provided.
