Event description

Description

The infamous story of the Mansfield men who, in October 1851, made their way to Rufford Park to take game. The results were violent – injury, death, transportation and imprisonment - and are still remembered in local folk lore. Sam Millard of the Rattlejag Morris team tells the story that made national news during the times of Luddite unrest.
