Selina at the Unity (via the Rebel Pen Club)

In autumn 2021, many of our Radicals contributors joined the celebration events for the delayed and much-anticipated launch of the Selina Cooper project at Nelson’s Unity Hall. Selina at the Unity has now been featured in the North West History Journal. Kevin Webb, one of the prime movers behind this lovely project, gave us this recap on how it all came about.

The Wonder Women Walk (via the Rebel Pen Club)

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.
