More about this scene


Caption for Tolpuddle, the Post Office c1955: Tolpuddle will always be an important place in English history. From here six farm labourers were transported to Australia in 1834 for taking an illegal oath in their quest for union recognition and better wages and conditions. This harsh treatment shocked the world, and the Tolpuddle Martyrs were eventually pardoned and allowed to come home. A small museum chronicles their ordeal.
