The Tolpuddle Martyrs were a group of agricultural labourers who were tried and transported to Australia for the 'crime' of trying to form a union. Their story is key to the formation of modern trades unionism.

Shop : Books : The Church Shown Up

First published by the Dorchester Committee in 1838

Reprinted by the TUC Tolpuddle Martyrs’ Memorial Trust 2005

After hearing his character being maligned and being called “a strife-maker and a peace-breaker” and “that wicked man” this extensive letter was written by George Loveless’ own hand to the Rev. Henry Walter, Vicar of Haselbury Bryant, Dorsetshire. A stinging challenge to the hypocrisy and indifference of the Church.
