The Co-operative Movement in Congleton
November 1, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm£3 – £5
As the Industrial Revolution forced many skilled workers into poverty, the Rochdale Pioneers, the fathers of the Co-op Movement, opened their own store selling food they could not otherwise afford. This spread to other industrial towns including Congleton. This walk will chart this growth and visit the shops/premises much loved in people’s memories.
