Leaving Weymouth – Tolpuddle

We left windy Weymouth and took a slight detour to visit the Tolpuddle Martyrs museum in the village of Tolpuddle, next to the villages of Puddletown, Affpuddle, and Briantspuddle; all on the banks of the River Piddle, which also passes through Piddlehinton and Piddletrenthide. You can’t make this stuff up! Anyway, the trial of the Tolpuddle Martyrs represents a significant event in British 19th century history.
