Stalybridge town hall monument
AS you can see in the photo there are two blue plaques on the town hall commemorating local events.
One plaque commemorates the 'first general strike' which originated in this area. It began as a movement of resistance to the imposition of wage cuts in the mills and was also known as the 'Plug Riots'. It spread to involve nearly half a million workers throughout Britain and represented the biggest single exercise of working class strength in nineteenth century Britain.
