Following tonight’s meeting we have an extra special treat. Our very own Alan Hill will give a talk on:

Sir Joseph Bazalgette & the Great Stink of London


Throughout human history, the number one cause of death has been contaminated water – in some parts of the world it still is. In mid-19th century Britain, polluted water was still a major problem – four outbreaks of Cholera in London claimed over 37,000 lives. This is the story of how Sir Joseph Bazalgette, Chief Engineer to the Metropolitan Board of Works overcame disease & reshaped London in the process.


Alan is a member of the trust and is working as part of our engineering team who are carefully cleaning and protecting the brightwork on the engine. The engineering team are doing sterling work, so do pop down to the pumping station and say hello.
