Event Navigation

Lambley logoOn Monday 23rd October 2017 at Lowdham WI Hall commencing at 7:30pm Michael Parkin will look at the Rising at Pentrich in Derbyshire which took place in the difficult period following the Napoleonic War. Many historians held the view that England was never closer to a full-blown revolution than during the period 1815 to 1820. With leaders still looking over their shoulders at the French Revolution, the country under an enormous burden of post-war debt and the economy on its knees, the government resorted to dubious tactics in order to survive. Quite a story from a small Derbyshire village!
