Tolpuddle Martyrs' Museum

In 1934 on the centenary of the Martyrs' conviction, the TUC built the "Memorial Cottages" at the western end of the village. The museum evolved from the library provided for residents, and is now a modern and vibrant display of the Martyrs' story. There is also a modern commemorative sculpture, which was erected in 2000. An annual Festival commemorates the Martyrs and celebrates the movement for workers' rights (weekend of 3rd Sunday in July - see www.tolpuddlemartyrs.org.uk for speakers and performers).
