Rochdale Pioneers

One borrowed a wheelbarrow, pushed it into Manchester, one was guard on the longboat that despatched Napoleon to St Helena, 14 were Unitarians, 17 now lie together in Rochdale cemetery. Some were weavers, most were socialists; Owenites Chartists one was a Tory, all were visionaries. Come on their vision and see how 28 men became 850 million.
