Thomas Clarkson

This weekend marks the anniversary of the death of Thomas Clarkson in 1846. His memorial is a constant and very visible reminder of his legacy, and was opened by the Speaker of the House of Commons in 1881. This anniversary is timely reminder of the heroic fight he led for the abolition of the Slave Trade, the pride locally in his historic achievements, and of the need to remain vigilant 174 years later against the continued existence of hidden modern slavery in rural communities like our own.
