 AGM 3.00 pm at the Berriew Village Hall.SY21 8BA

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.
