A group of residents from Skelton have recreated a protest walk originally undertaken by hundreds of people in the 1800's.
In 1880 a group of 800 Skelton miners and local residents took part in a walk to protest about the closure of a public road by local landowners the Wharton Estate.
Back then they were supporting Miss Hannah Emmerson of Skelton who had ordered that a fence erected to block a local path be removed and who was facing court as a result.
On Saturday afternoon residents once again walked the route originally taken back in 1880, to draw attention to the importance of keeping public rights of way open.
This time round the walkers included Anthony Wharton who is a descendant of the Wharton Estate.
Organisers have hailed the event as a success, and have thanked everybody who took part.
