Event description

Description

How does cement dry when it’s surrounded by the sea? Hear how engineer John Smeaton answered this question with his friend, innovator William Cookworthy, when he was building our landmark lighthouse.

Told by our professional storytellers you will learn how their friendship helped create the Plymouth landmark we all know and love today. You can even play with clay and make your own creation to take home.

£5 per child (accompanying adults go free). Booking is essential.

This is a ‘Museum On Tour’ event for The Box, Plymouth. This event is part of our ICE 200 programme marking 200 years since the founding of the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Entrance via The Tourist Information Centre, 3-5 the Barbican, Plymouth PL1 2LR
