Monthly Meetings

In a welcome return to meeting in person,

Our next Monthly Meeting will be at 2.00pm on 24th August (doors open at 1.30pm)

Featuring Paul Scott speaking on "Agrarian to Industrialist", the story of

local celebrity Joseph Banks

Paul describes his talk as "A review of the evidence linking Sir Joseph Banks 1743-1820

to the rise of manufacturing and industry in Britain and beyond in the late 18th

and early 19th Century.

Sir Joseph Banks was one of the 18th century’s most outstanding men, during his time

Britain went from a pre-industrial agricultural society to become one based

on mechanical production.

In his capacious energy and letters one can see that he was a catalyst for much of the

discoveries and improvements of the period."

On this occasion, visitors will be welcomed free of charge
