History Day 2018 – Historic Crime and Punishment in Cheshire

The subject for the Cheshire Local History Association History Day on Saturday 3 November 2018, was Historic Crime and Punishment in Cheshire.

Once again we prepared a highly praised display on this theme, with illustrations on common punishments such as the crank, shot drill and picking oakum; Knutsford Goal; the use of training ships on the River Mersey for delinquent boys and the Industrial Schools that were established in the area for girls and boys.

Our display in Northwich Memorial Court


After a very successful day in November, our display will be available for you to see in both Knutsford and Wilmslow public libraries during May 2019.
