Ned Ludd

Bringing the Ned Ludd story home …

The next stage of bringing the Ned Ludd story home to Anstey …

Jane, Jenny and myself met with Sharon and Ian from Loughborough Local History Volunteers this afternoon – and we now have boxes of posters and artefacts to display in the display cabinet Phil found for us … with Ian Porter heading to the record office to gather more evidence of Ned Ludd’s life in Anstey.

Tony Jarram, local Luddite expert, has said he will do a talk for the local community – we’re looking at creating a local history trail based on archived maps, as well as working closely with local schools and library favourite, local archivist Brian Kibble.

More news soon – and continuing thanks to Sharon and Ian for making this all possible – especially because, just like us, they are unpaid volunteers too.
