With more than 100 pictures, this book tells the story of the extraordinary rise of the non-conformists in the Upper Calder Valley, West Yorkshire, and is a lovely addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in the dissenters and the chapels they created. Author Amy Binns explains how this "wild and unchristian place" became a heartland for the movement, and how these matter-of-fact rebels changed our world. Refusing to pray the way the Government told them to was only the start of the non-conformist revolution. Soon their chapels flowered across the landscape as they formed trade unions, built schools for all and campaigned for the vote. And through it all was an energy and enthusiasm that blossomed in plays and pantomimes, lantern lectures and bazaars, firebrand pulpit performances and heartfelt prayer meetings. Including many posters and programmes for chapel events in Hebden Bridge, Todmorden and Sowerby Bridge, three maps to help you find the remaining chapels and anecdotes about the lives of those who built them.
