We are very fortunate to have Peter Brown as our speaker after the meeting.
Besides being a member of the Friends, Peter is currently a member of the
Council of the Canal & River Trust, an adviser to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct &
Canal World Heritage Site, and Heritage & Planning Officer for the local
Inland Waterways Association Branch. His book 'The Shropshire Union Canal',
won the Association for Industrial Archaeology's Book of the Year award in 2019,
following fifteen years of research. It's an economic and social history of the
canal, its predecessors and successors, including what we now call the
Llangollen, Montgomery and Shrewsbury & Newport Canals as well as the
Shropshire Union Main Line and Middlewich Branch.
Peter will concentrate on the section of canal from Berriew southwards and
will show a collection of old photographs to illustrate his talk.
