The Battle of Stockton-on-Tees


This week’s Making History on BBC Radio 4 includes an interesting piece about the successful opposition to a march by Oswald Mosley’s Blackshirts in Stockton’s High Street in 1933, three years prior to the more well known Cable Street protest.

One response to “The Battle of Stockton-on-Tees

  1. Thanks for putting this up. Can you pass on your e-mail to me at walshda@hotmail.co.uk as I have a couple of pieces done for a local newspaper in East Cleveland on music matters in recent months – teeespop 68 concert at Estion and the Edgar Broiughton free concert at Redcar in 1971 that scandalized local worthies and led to many arrests.
