Meeting & Talk “The Swing Riots”
Wed, July 17 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
A talk about the Swing Riots by Dr David Peacock, who has promised us a connection to The Hinds Head in Aldermaston
The Swing Riots were a widespread uprising in 1830 by agricultural workers in southern and eastern England in protest of agricultural mechanisation and harsh working conditions.
Previously Dr David Peacock gave the History group a talk on Padworth House and then subsequently lead a party of members in a tour of the house.
