Mossley remembers Peterloo at St George’s Church.

Open every Saturday 10.00 am till 4.00 pm, and every Sunday Noon till 4.00 pm, throughout August. Free, no booking required. Everyone Welcome.

A special exhibition commemorating Mossley’s involvement with Peterloo. Who were witnesses at the trial of Henry Hunt? Where is John Knight buried? Which controversial figure preached his oratory sermon? Who carried the Saddleworth, Lees, and Mossley Union Flag at Peterloo? Who led the Mossley contingent? What did Rev Robert Hay do on the moors above Mossley? The answers to all of these questions will be found in the exhibition.
