Event description

Description

Dr Mike Nevell is a landscape, buildings and industrial archaeologist with more than 28 years experience. Currently the Head of Archaeology at the University of Salford, he is also the author of many books and was an occasional contributor to Channel 4 TV’s Time Team.
Archaeological and historical interest in the canal has been cyclical. In the 1760s and 1770s it was a source of wonder and one of the first tourist destinations of the Industrial Revolution. Early visitors included a princess, a king, and a future Czar of Russia. As late as 1851 the Bridgewater Canal was visited by Queen Victoria. One of the world’s great industrial transport monuments, the canal is again the focus of archaeologists, historians and researchers. This talk will describe the work done in recent times to uncover the story of the canal.
Doors open at 7.00pm and the event begins at 7.30pm.
