An event commemorating The Pentrich Uprising of 1817 which came to a grinding halt in Kimberley in 1817 has been held.
Around 80 people attended the special event between Pentrich and South Wingfield, on Saturday, including descendants of the original revolutionaries.
In 1817 more than 200 armed men led by Jeremiah Brandreth set out to march to Nottingham with revolutionary demands, including the wiping out of the National Debt, but the rebellion was betrayed and brutally suppressed.
They had hoped to seize weapons at Butterley Ironworks but were refused. They continued to march ti Kimberley where they were met by Government troops. Forty men were arrested and three, including Brandreth, were hung.
