Contributors to Pendle Radicals are developing a series of themed Radicals walks. After the Two Toms, celebrating two pioneers of the countryside movement, comes this homage to two inspirational campaigning women. Bob Sproule gives a preview of this urban/rural trek linking historic locations in Nelson and Earby.
To read more about this walk, that takes in locations connected to Selina Cooper and Katharine Bruce Glasier, read Bob’s blog on the Rebel Pen Club site.

Anne Cochrane, a member of the Pendle Radicals project volunteer Radical Research Team, shares some fascinating connections discovered during her work as a volunteer researcher and archivist…
I now have three volunteering hats, one is for Burnley Library and the Lancashire Archive, one is for the Pendle Radicals project, and the third is as unofficial keeper of the archive for Lowerhouse Cricket Club, (1862 – and counting). I can prove that all three projects are actually connected, albeit the cricket club link is a bit tenuous, so I can wear all three hats at once, I am thinking flat caps here rather than top hats.
