Our first event of 2021 will be a visit to Whaley Bridge in Derbyshire on Saturday the 4th of September 2021.

This is right in the heart of the town very near to the railway station-easy connection to Greater Manchester stations – at the Old tram sheds at the head of the canal…SK23 7LS.  This area was vital to Lime production and transportation during the industrial revolution.

We meet at 11 am sharp.

We begin with tea and biscuits and a talk on the history of the area then half an hour to peruse the books followed by a short walk to the canal arm where Mr Edgar,  the chairman of a Trust responsible for re opening this section of the canal, gives us a brief talk on the restoration.

For those that wish to We then walk the short distance to the Navigation Inn where I have booked seating and you can purchase food and drink.

The cost for the event is £6 per person.
