Building Lease Update:
Two trustees met with Persimmon on Tuesday 5 November to discuss the lease. There are still a few issues to iron out, but we feel we made some steady progress. To be discussed at the next public meeting on 11 November.
After the visit by Historic England on 16 Jan, the site has
unfortunately been placed on the Heritage At Risk Register.
This is indeed sad news to see that this magnificent piece of industrial heritage is now officially at risk of permanent loss.
The trust is committed to continue working with the owner, Persimmon Homes Ltd to find a sustainable solution that will bring this building and its historic contents aback into a community use.
Following on from last months talk from David Moore who presented a talk about Digital Photography including video filming, producing time lapse sequences and drone photography. Our very own David Cross will be talking about the history of tidal power in the UK
David has had a very interesting and fascinating careerer in the power industry and so is well placed to deliver an extremely engaging talk, not to be missed
Persimmon have now completed their repairs, and the team was back on site by 14 October.
Please feel free to pop in or lend a hand or just come a take a look around. We are open every Friday between 10:00am and 12:30 pm. Free tea and coffee.
