Every year there is a Tolpuddle Martrys’ festival in memory of a group of early trade unionists who were exiled to Australia. For 2014, STIR magazine organized a ‘pilgrim’s’ tour walking from Devon to Somerset for the Torpuddle festival to commemorate the deportation.
The map was used as a publicity tool before the event to encourage people to join in with the walk, and was also used as the cover image for the summer edition of the magazine.
Elements of the larger map illustration were pulled out within the publication.
As part of the ‘pilgrimage’ STIR magazine had organised an event with the brewery Gyle 59. They asked if they could use the illustration for the label that they printed for a short run beer produced for the hike.
