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.
