The Newcomen Society, Birmingham

The Newcomen Society runs a series of winter lectures at 7pm on the first Wednesday of each month commencing 2 October at the lecture theatre in Thinktank.

On the 4 December I will be delivering a talk about Sandfields Pumping Station, the Story of Clean Water and how it fed the Industrial Revolution.

Everyone is welcome and the admission is free, doors open at 6:P30pm. The theatre is on the middle level of the building.

About morturn

Historian – Photographer – Filmmaker Retired construction professional with a passion for public, social and industrial history. I believe in equality, dignity and integrity for all. Don’t like people who try to belittle the ambitions of others. I am of the opinion that my now life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live.
