Many rioters were injured or killed and the ringleaders executed . The events of this time are told through the novel 'Shirley' by Charlotte Bronte.
The nearby Oakwell Hall in Birstall, is the starting point of the 'Bronte Way', a 45 mile (73km) circular route which links several locations associated with the lives and literary works of the Bronte family.
