The Hall & Woodhouse brewery is in the Dorset market town of Blandford Forum, and won a lot of business from the demise of Eldridge Pope in Dorchester. Their trademark motif is a Badger.

William Huskisson MP

first pesron in the world to be killed by a passenger train. All railway law and Rules descend from this event, in 1830, but it was not until later we got 'The Railway and Carriage of Passengers Act' of 1864 which is still law today.

But y'all knew that anyway

A newly-painted pub sign for The Coach and Horses does not meet with the approval of the Landlord, who writes to the Supplier:

'The spaces between 'coach' and 'and' and 'and' and horses are not the same'.

The year 1848 saw revolutions throughout much of Europe (and a Chartist demonstration in the UK). Name the battle which was Ireland's only contribution to the unrest.

Wikipedia thinks the same as Witchfinder.
(The Young Irelander Rebellion of 1848 was a small, failed rebellion which broke out in Balingarry, Co. Tipperary. It was led by the Young Ireland movement, inspired by famine conditions)



Some of the English rioters in Trafalgar Square were transported to Australia. The third Chartist petition had failed to pass Parliament in 1848, and was effectively the end of the movement.

A Bronze Age trackway runs from East Grinstead to Horsham along the ridge through Pease Pottage, with the banks still just visible if you know where to look, and also some burial mounds.

Not a lot of people know that.

1. Name the book from which the extract below is taken.
2. Name the author.
3. State the year in which it was written.

Owen: “You’re one of the upholders of the present system – you help to perpetuate it!”
“Ow do I help to perpetuate it?” demanded Easton.
Owen: “By not trying to find out how to end it – by not helping those who are trying to bring a better state of things into existence. Even if you are indifferent to your own fate – as you seem to be – you have no right to be indifferent to that of the child for whose existence in this world you are responsible. Every man who is not helping to bring about a better state of affairs for the future is helping to perpetuate the present misery, and is therefore the enemy of his own children. There is no such thing as being neutral: we must either help or hinder.”
