Stop Press — Latest news — Saturday 23rd January 2021

Our next talk is on  1st Febraury 2021. We start at 10:30hrs (doors open at 10:00hrs) with Ian Rotherhamwho is giving us an  illus­trated talk about Sheffield’s ancient woods and trees — a sur­pris­ing his­tory & her­it­age.


Today, 18th Jan, we had a record turnout of 55 (inc. guests and our speaker) for Michael Edwards  who gave us a very well illus­trated talk about the The Chesterfield Canal, its his­tory and res­tor­a­tion.

Michael would nor­mally bring books and so forth and nat­ur­ally this won’t be pos­sible so here is the link to their web­site where books and other items can be pur­chased.

Michael Clarke’s excel­lent blog is now pub­lished on the recent talks page.


EXTRA! the forth­com­ing talks page has been update and is now up to the end of May.  An extra talk has been added and one not to be missed!

On 22nd Feb we have a talk on  “Exploring Icelandic Volcanoes” by Dave McGarvie who we have fitted in before he returns to Iceland to under­take fur­ther stud­ies.
