Can you help?
This interactive map of Hastings is a work in progress so if you have anything to add to please get in touch with The Society. Information on the exact location of the Hollington P.S.A. (Primary School Academy) and the ‘Grand Restaurant, Hastings’ in particular would be greatly appreciated! Both were venues where Muriel once spoke.
Map of the 1908 Caravan Tour
In 1908 Muriel Matters, along with other members of the Women’s Freedom League (WFL), toured the South East counties of England by caravan. They proclaimed the benefits of women’s suffrage to rural areas and helped create new WFL branches as they went. Above their route is marked out in red, alongside the dates that they were in each town. A special thanks to Marie and Chris Maddocks of The Muriel Matters Society for preparing this lovely map.
