Edith Rigby Guided Tour

Take a stroll with a difference around Winckley Square and beyond

Would you like to discover more about the life of Edith Rigby, Preston's most famous suffragette. Why not join Judy, a Friend of Winckley Square Tour Guide for a guided walk.

The walk starts in the centre of Winckley Square Gardens and takes you to where Edith was born, you stop for refreshments in the lovely cafe at the Central Methodist Church where Edith married Charles Rigby. You spend time in Winckley Square where Edith and Charles lived with their adopted son Sandy and where many of the Preston Suffragette meetings were held.

The walk progresses to Miller Park where she was suspected of tarring Lord Derby's Statue. If you look carefully you can still see the tar.

Hear about Edith's time in prison and how she and many more women who wanted the vote were subjected to the 'Cat and Mouse Act'.

Fee £4. You can just turn up but places are limited so be assured of a place and book a ticket through Eventbrite. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/edith-rigby-guided-trail-tickets-260484796037
