                                                                                                      The Corn laws had been brought in in 1815 to regulate bread prices and instituted tariffs on the import of any grain into Great Britain. In 1838 the Anti Corn Law League was founded to campaign for the repeal of this legislation and was successful in 1846. The Manchester Free Trade Hall was built to commemorate the repeal.
