Barton Trafford and Castlefield Talk (Zoom) 2021

Thursday 13th May 7:00 pm – 8:00pm BST

From the Romans to the present day, we travel through time to see the wonders of industry, transport, technology, art, architecture + leisure

Grab yourself a coffee or tipple and sit comfortably in your favourite armchair. I will then step back in time to show you how our the rural hamlet of Barton evolved and how a Cathedral in miniature came to be built. We will be looking at two major transport routes…the Dukes Cut and the Big Ditch.  I will also tell you a bit about Trafford Park a medieval deer park than transformed into  the first industrial park in the world.  We will visit pleasure Gardens and art exhibitions enroute to Castlefield where I can show you a Roman Fort and some amazing Victorian Infrastructure.   
Using maps and images, we will discover people and communities that created these areas and the main players and their achievements.

Cost £5 plus booking fee (early bird offer) or £8
