Stories from the suffrage movement in Herefordshire

Please join us for the second of our online talks, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.  Last month we screened local historian David Whitehead’s fascinating lecture on Sir George Gilbert Scott and the restoration of Moccas Church.

This month we’ll be exploring the surprising stories of the suffrage movement in Herefordshire.  Clare Wichbold MBE gives a lively and moving account of the early efforts of Herefordians, both male and female, to bring about the right for

women to vote.  Historically seen as something of a backwater in the fight for the vote, Clare has discovered that Herefordshire’s role in the national suffrage story was far more significant than previously thought…


This 40 minute illustrated lecture was filmed at Moccas Church last October. We will be showing it using Zoom, and Clare will be available for a Q&A session afterwards. If you would like to join us for this event, please email us

and we will then send you the link and any joining instructions.


If you would like to watch the film but have difficulty using Zoom, please let us know and we will provide an alternative link to the film
