A talk by Alexandra Fairclough Green Badge Guide for the Bridgewater Canal

Sat February 27th 2021 7:00 – 8:15 PM GMT


Grab yourself a coffee or tipple and sit comfortably in your favourite armchair. I will then step back in time to show you how wonderful Worsley evolved. Its history is hidden from obvious view.  Using maps and images, we will discover people and communities that created this famous cradle of the industrial revolution including famous people and their achievements and lesser known men and women whose blood and sweat we benefit from today. 

Hopefully, afterwards you will look at the streets and buildings in a different light. I look forward to meeting you all online.

Bridgewater Guided Tours set fee for virtual tours is £8 per household but as an introductory offer I’m doing a limited number of early bird price of £5 per household plus booking fee. When the early bird tickets are gone – they’re gone, so book now!
