Caption for Tolpuddle, Martyrs Seat and the Village c1960:
The memorial seat commemorates the six
agricultural labourers who met beneath the
sycamore tree (centre) in 1834, and were
transported to Australia for taking an illegal oath
during an initiation ceremony for trade union
membership. The view is eastwards from the village
green to a range of 18th-century thatched cottages
(right). The green was given to the National Trust by
Sir Ernest Debenham in 1934 to commemorate the
centenary of the Tolpuddle Martyrs.
