‘In the footsteps of Luddites’ In April 1812 a crowd of impoverished Boltonians marched from Atherton to Westhoughton and burned down Westhoughton Mill, the symbol of their oppression.
In the aftermath, four people were hanged. Stuart Murray plans to celebrate the event by organising a walk which will follow in the footsteps of the demonstrators on that fateful day.
