Resources

Cinderloo 1821 is gathering together a range of resources to help raise awareness of the events of Cinderloo and its historical context.  Some of these have been produced by ourselves and most of these are included in a specific section below for our educational programme of work in schools.  Please return to this page as we continue to add further resources.

Relevant resources are listed below as links for downloading or to other websites:

The Dawley Heritage website hosts an excellent article by Paul Sherry and other related historical information.

We believe the most authoritative writing about Cinderloo is Ian Thomas’ 2004 dissertation which you can download here:

The contemporary newspaper reports provide a fascinating insight into the unfolding drama.  You can download transcripts here:

Walking

Cinderloo 1821 will be organising a series of walks exploring the routes that the protesters took in 1821, from which we will build up a map incorporating information and responses from the local communities.  There are already excellent heritage trails for self-guided exploration which can be found here:

Dawley Heritage Trail

Miners’ Walk

Produced by former Granville Colliery Miner’s, Malcolm Peel, Cliff Hewitt and Stewart Braddock The Miner’s Walk is a 5.4 mile accessible circular heritage trail travelling through past industrial sites which connect to past and present transport links and communities. Funded by National Lottery Sharing Heritage this work has involved a 12 month community programme of events, training, voluntary and partnership support. Picking up five communities: – St Georges, Oakengates, Mumpton Hill / Snedshill, Dark Lane Village (now Telford Town Centre and Hollinswood) and Priorslee, volunteers have identified over 60 heritage sites throughout the area.
