Annual Peterloo Walk


The annual memorial walk to Peterloo from Barrowfields will take place this Sunday 17th August. The walk begins outside the former home of radical Samuel Bamford, who led a march from Middleton to St Peter’s Field to join protestors in August 1819. Actor Maxine Peake will give an address at the conclusion of the march. There are several pick-up points along the route so do go along and support the marchers!
