8 ladies joined me this Sunday for my walk 'The Luddite Trail' around Hartshead, Robertstown and Liversedge. We had lots of history about the raid on Cartwrights Mill at Rawfolds by the Luddites. We passed the pub 'The Shears Inn' where they met to plot and Jackson's Cropping shop.. Hartshead church where Robin Hood allegedly fashioned his last arrow from the ancient Yew in the graveyard. An Anglo Saxon Cross, an early Christian 'Lady Well' and all about Bullace trees and their crop as we passed the farm named after them. Despite the very heavy and tiring mud nobody became a 'Cropper'.........gerrit?
