Ramblers turned revolutionaries this week to commemorate the 194th anniversary of the Pentrich Revolution.
In 1817 a 300-strong band of men marched towards Nottingham with the aim of joining up with a national revolt against the government of the day.
On Friday, June 10, Codnor man Bob Tye, 56, from Codnor Denby Lane co-organised a walk of the same route the 300 dissenters took to raise money for the charity Starfish Ministries. The four ‘revolutionary ramblers’ walked for four hours and raised £600 for the charity, which helps homeless people in the UK. Bob said: “It was very interesting to do the route which those men took and see all the plaques on the way.”
