Cycling to Suffrage – Bikes & Bonnets

A commemorative bike ride from Longhorsley (Emily’s family home) to Morpeth involving up to 100 women and girls. Emily herself was a keen cyclist and cycling was a symbol of emancipation. Participants will then join in the procession from Morpeth railway Station to St Mary’s churchyard.
