In line with the spirit of the Chartists, workers were today out sweating to get the commemorative plaque in place ready for its opening on Monday.
The Derbyshire stone plinth upon which the plaque sits weighs over three tons, and was carved by stonemasons Mather and Ellis of Trafford Park, a firm founded in 1880.
"It was a real engineering job to erect but, at last, just 172 years after the Chartist met, it is acknowledged" says Alice Searle of Friends of Kersal Moor "And it took grass-roots effort, appropriately, to get it done."
The plaque will be unveiled at around 3pm on Monday at a special Celebration of Kersal Moor event which begins at 1pm. Further details here…
