Songs of Praise

We were delighted that the BBC’s Songs of Praise team got in touch about featuring some of our Pendle Radicals on one of their programmes. Presenter Sean Fletcher headed to the top of Pendle Hill, on a beautiful summer’s day, with our Project Manager Shonagh Ingram, to discover the story of George Fox, who began the Quaker movement. George Fox is one of our Radicals, and his story is part of the Radicals Trail, which encourages people to find a series of plaques dedicated to free thinkers and non-conformists. The trail also took Sean to the only remaining Inghamite church, established by another of our Radicals, Benjamin Ingham in 1750.

The programme aired on Sunday 12 September 2021 and is available on iPlayer until 10 October 2021.
