HRS 3904 Ramsbottom, Chatterton 2005

Chatterton is small community alongside the River Irwell famous in its history for the so-called 'Chatterton Riots'. "On 26 April 1826, rioting Luddites were read the Riot Act at Chatterton by the 60th Rifle Corps (later to become known as the King's Royal Rifle Corps). Ignoring the reading of the act, the mob attempted to destroy looms at Aitken and Lord's factory whereupon the soldiers eventually opened fire, killing 4 men and wounding many others." Wikipedia
