Public Historian David Moore will be at The Museum of Cannock Chase on Wednesday 21 May 2014 at 15:00am onward to talk about the hidden industrial heritage of the Black County and how it supported the growth of the area and the industrial revolution.
In the mid 19th century, the industrial revolution was at it’s peak when the deadly cholera struck, wiping out almost 20% of the population….
…. it was an organised waterworks system that saved peoples lives, and gave relief to the beleaguered community’s.
The waterworks at Sandfields is one of the Black Country’s hidden gems, and is at risk of permanent loss.
