Mahatma Gandhi West Bradford 1931

By 1931 the British government realized that if they did not release Gandi they could have a revolution on their hands.He was released and very shortly came over the UK for the 'Round Table Talks' on the future of India at St. James Palace.While he was over here he was invited to view at first hand 'the misery and poverty' that the goverment of the day claimed that Gandhi and his actions back home (inspiring Indians to handspin their own cloth) was causing the people over here.He visted alot of the towns around this part of Lancashire.He stayed for a few days at Heys Farm Guest house in West Bradford in meditaion.While he stayed for the few days he was here he walked around the local area and met local people.He commented how beautiful he thought this part of the Ribble Valley was.In the end as much as he had alot of sympathy for the people over here,he stated that conditons back in India were alot worse than in the UK and so nothing was changed.
