    11.00-3.00Mow Cop Castle

    Mow Cop is one of 50 places chosen by the National Trust as part of The People's Landscape Project.

    'People, Protest and Politics: Methodists, Mow Cop and Social Change', is an exciting event organised by The National Trust, in partnership with Englesea Brook and Mow Cop Methodist Church.

    We want to celebrate the Primitive Methodist movement which transformed the lives of working people in the 19th century, and its lasting legacy.

    The day will include pop-up speakers, poetry from Emily Galvin, Staffordshire's poet laureate, singing from the John Moore Quire, a Shepherd's Hut, and more!

    Refreshments will be available at Mow Cop Methodist Church.

    A walk is being organised from a car park on the Biddulph side, and a Shuttle Bus will run regularly to the top.

    Watch the website for more details.

    Stephen Duckworth, a collector for over 40 years, will tell the story of the colourful, naïve biblical and other religious pottery figures which found their way into many Primitive Methodist homes in the 19th century. 

    A new display in the museum explores these fascinating artefacts and there is a copy of Stephen's book of the same title in the Cottage Reading Room.
