The Battle of Heptonstall (via the Radical Echo)

Nick Burton, a member of the Pendle Radicals volunteer research team, tells us about a Radical experience for the volunteers in Heptonstall…

On Saturday 2nd March, a group of Pendle Radicals volunteers ventured out on a stormy night over the border to Pennine Yorkshire.

This was a political and human storm in the shape of the English Civil War.
