Wye Valley Industrialists – Colin Andrew

19 November @ 14:30 - 16:00

A few centuries ago our Wye Valley, now a tranquil Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, was a bustling, noisy, fiery, smoky centre of industry, significant in the development of the country’s industrial heritage. The personalities who drove it ranged from the almost angelic to the decidedly iffy.

In this talk, Colin Andrew explores some of them, along with their achievements and the few signs which remain of them.
