See where history was made

The village of Tolpuddle is now a small, quiet place, full of charming cottages. It is hard to imagine the turbulent events that took place here in 1834. Experience the story through the audio-visual trail availbale on this web site or on tablets to hire from the shop.

Maxine Peake narrates the story and guides you through re-enactments of the story, vintage films and contemporary interviews. The trail is packed with short films and inlcudes activities for children.

A fold-out paper trail is available and works well alongside the audio-visual guide. It suggest you start from the Tolpuddle Martyrs' Museum. The Museum stands in the centre of a row of six Memorial Cottages built in 1934 by the Co-operative Wholesale Society.

The trail takes about an hour.
