Warships, ship propellers, unusual railway locomotives, plate cameras, Garibaldi biscuits, micro-aerometers (for coalmines)… and Coca Cola!

For many years Lewisham had a thriving industrial base. Sadly now mostly gone, join us via Zoom for a fascinating overview of our local industrial heritage presented by local resident David Perrett – who also happens to be Chair of the Association for Industrial Archaeology (AIA)! (and also Professor Emeritus of of BioAnalytical Science, Barts Medical School, QMUL). We couldn’t hope for a more eminently qualified guide…

Please drop us an email to request your Zoom joining code:
