SALTBURN U3A LOCAL HISTORY LECTURES
Guisborough U3A members are also invited to attend.
The talks are interesting, stimulating and thought provoking! No need to book, please just come along and enjoy them.
Sadly the following didn't take place in 2020 but hopefully the speakers and guide can be rebooked for 2021. The talks will resume when groups are allowed to meet again and you'll be very welcome to join us.
11 March - Peter Morgan. From flax to linen. How the flax industry developed in our area.
8 April - Geoff Reynolds. The development of the rigid airship by Graf Zeppelin and its successful commercial application until the Hindenburg disaster of 1937.
13 May – Jenny Braddy. Many think Middlesbrough began in the 1830s as the industrial revolution reached this area. Well, we may have to think again.
10 June – Discover historic Marske. Patricia Chapman will guide us round the hidden gems and old town of historic Marske, bringing it to life.
