This evening at 7:30pm, (7th October 2015), they have Richard Green of the Lichfield Waterworks Trust talking about the Lichfield water supply through history.
The talk takes place at the Minster Hall, off Dam Street in Lichfield, and is free to attend.
Kate had this to say about it:
This evening, Monday 9th November we have a talk on The Lichfield Waters by Richard Green of the Lichfield Waterworks Trust. Richard will be talking to us about the history of Lichfield’s water supply over the years from the time of St Chad to the twentieth century, and in particular the role Lichfield played in supplying the Black Country with clean drinking water during the cholera epidemics of the mid-nineteeth century.
The talk starts at 7.30pm and please note we’re at a different location – Minster Hall off Dam Street. However, if anyone is unsure where this is, please wait outside St Mary’s in the Market Square at 7.30pm and we’ll come and find you. After the talk there’ll be tea and biscuits and the chance for a chat. As most people will know, there are have been some very exciting developments in the Lichfield Waterworks Trust’s campaign to save Sandfields Pumping Station and so if anyone is interested in the Trust’s work this is an ideal opportunity to come and find out more.
Everyone welcome, no charge but voluntary donations towards the hire of the room and to the Lichfield Waterworks Trust are always appreciated.
These events are increasing in popularity, and I can see why; this is a collection of dedicated but offbeat local history enthusiasts who really know how to make their subject engaging and entertaining. And it’s absolutely free to attend. What’s not to love?
Please do attend, it’ll be great fun!
