Releasing the pigeons for the bicentennial of Stoodley Pike monument

Celebrating the bicentenary of the monument on Stoodley Pike, overlooking Todmorden. The original monument was inspired by the Treaty of Paris in 1814, and as such it or at least the stone monument which now stands in its place is listed as one of the oldest towers in the world dedicated to peace.

This celebration included a gathering of visitors from Todmorden's twin town; Ronq in France; music from Todmorden Community Brass Band and the Handmade Samba band; giant puppets, and a mayoral speech.

The finale of the celebration was the release of two hundred homing pigeons from the parapet of the monument… this is the moment they flew away.
