GMB BANNER; DORSET

BANNER - GENERAL AND MUNICIPAL WORKERS UNION - DORST

Last Sunday, I posted a photo of the GMB banner for the South of England. Here is one for Dorset, leaning against a hedge before the procession starts.

In it I think I see
Gold Hill (a steep street in Shaftesbury)
The Topuddle Tree  (a sycamore)
Chesil Beach and the Fleet 
Durdle Door and the cliffs of Purbeck
Wimborne Minster
The thatched cottages - not sure . .  there are cottages like this all over Dorset, including Topuddle. But they may also be a reference to Thomas Hardy's Cottage
The Sculpture of George Loveless

To find out more about the Tolpuddle Martyrs' Festival, see the first post in this series.
