200th Anniversary of Cinderloo

Today marks the 200th anniversary of Cinderloo! 

The Cinderloo Uprising took place at Old Park in the Coalbrookdale Coalfield on 2 February 1821, when the South Shropshire Yeomanry confronted a crowd of 3,000 mostly striking workers who had gathered to protest the continued lowering of their pay. 

Here's our collaboration 'Tom Palin at Cinderloo' with the wonderful poet Jean Atkin as part of our Understories project'. We're so proud of this work and collaboration with Jean, which you can watch below.

You can get the book and CD on SALE from us HERE: Understories for £5.00!
