July's Talk
Gregg Redford Saturday 1st July 2017

The Pentrich Rebellion will be the subject of the July talk

The men of the Derbyshire village of Pentrich formed themselves into an armed force in 1817 and marched towards Nottingham expecting to be part of a national uprising to overthrow the government. The main reason for their action was anger and despair at the lack of work, lack of food and the apparent indifference of the government and local authorities to their ever more desperate plight.
