'Transport' Talk series - Fourth talk of five. (Thu. 21 Feb, 2019 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

The Wilts and Berks Canal: with Paul Joyce.

The Wilts & Berks Canal opened in 1810 and links the Kennet and Avon Canal at Semington, near Melksham, to the River Thames at Abingdon. It was abandoned in 1914, hastened by the collapse of Stanley aqueduct in 1901, but in recent decades sections have been restored and re-watered.  Paul's talk will highlight the importance of this waterway and its mixed fortunes over the years.

BOOK TICKETS: £5 (Members £4) included tea/coffee and cake.  Advanced booking was highly recommended though you could pay on the door (subject to availability).  Members could obtain a discount using the coupon code published in the current Berkshire Family Historian.
