For those interested in discovering something about the industrial past within and around the Wyre Forest area and beyond.
The group meets once a month, usually on the second Friday, at 10.00am, unless otherwise stated.
Meetings in Winter are now held at The Elizabeth Mills Centre in Stourport. The Hall is large enough to allow social distancing, has level access, free parking and a hearing loop. The rest of the year generally takes the form of visits to a place of industrial historical and contemporary interest - mostly half day visits but a few full day outings.
Our "at home" meetings are generally led by members who have wide ranging interests and fascinating insights into the wide subject that is our Industrial History.
Proposed visits, which were unable to take place, in 2020 included the Morgan Factory, Blaenavon Big Pit, Amazon "Fulfilment Centre" , Rugeley, Bristol Aerospace Museum, the JCB works and Soho House. For some longer trips we are lucky to have the use of a minibus.
During summer 21 the group met outdoors, at Titterstone Clee, the Stourbridge Canal and Broseley.
On 8th October, the meeting will be a Zoom meeting on "Making Money"- looking at coinage: On November 12th we will be meeting at our new winter venue, the Elizabeth Mills Centre in Stourport, when one of our members is presenting on the History of Stereo Recording. We hope this and the December meeting will be hybrid - members can dial in on Zoom to actively participate in the meeting if they prefer not to attend in person. Our Dec 10th meeting will be our usual light hearted Christmas Quiz meeting and planning meeting.
All dates are subject to Covid levels and restrictions.
