First stop was the Little Chef at Fontwell. Although they advertise free WiFi, I could not connect as it seems as it only applies to O2 customers.
My Smartnav unit did well. There was an accident on the M27 which caused a queue stretching back a few miles. Kerry took me off the junction before, and put me back afterwards. There were motorway notices warning of delays ahead, but without Kerry I would not have known if it was bad enough to avoid.
If I was to mention Tolpuddle, I bet everyone will say “martyrs” but who knows what the Tolpuddle martyrs are all about?
In 1834, a group of six villagers from the village of Tolpuddle were arrested and charged with taking an illegal oath. Having been found guilty, they were transported to Australia. Following large scale protests, they martyrs were given a pardon and returned to England.
There is a museum at Tolpuddle, although in reality it is just a room full of wall hangings telling the story.
