Bernice Collimore says…
In 1536, Louth saw the start of the Lincolnshire Uprising which resulted in 40,000 marching on Lincoln and occupying Lincoln Cathedral– this inspired and was closely followed by the Yorkshire Uprising which became The Pilgrimage of Grace. The people of Lincolnshire were described by Henry VIII as “rude commons of one of the most brute and beastly shires in the realm.”
At the core of the unrest was the dissolution of the monasteries and the sacking of the churches.
Today, we are seeing the dissolution of the National Health Service and the sacking of our hospitals and services.
The NHS Uprising The NHS Uprising banner from the Louth protest march on 2nd September against the drastic reduction and possible closure of the Louth Hospital will be marched from Louth to Lincoln Cathedral for a handover before the Lincoln march against the proposed closure of the Lincolnshire Walk In Centre.
Saturday the 14th October the banner will be marched through Grantham and handed over as part of its journey around the country
