The village of Tolpuddle is now a small, quiet place, full of charming cottages. It is hard to imagine the turbulent events that took place here in 1834.

You can follow the dramatic events that un-folded in the village through this site. Maxine Peake narrates the story and guides you through re-enactments of the story, vintage films and contemporary interviews. When you visit Tolpuddle you can buy a fold-out paper trail from the shop and hire a device to play the audio-visual guide as you walk around.
