Strikes, Demonstrations and Politics

The 1896 Winter Hill Mass Trespass was commemorated in 1982 by a march over the original route taken by the 10,000 or so Boltonians protesting over the loss of their right of way over Winter Hill. Here’s the 1982 march going up Halliwell Road. Another comemoration took place in 1996. In 2021 the Trespass will be celebrated by another march and lots of otehr events as well.
