Industrial Heritage

Convenor - Pat Thomas (01522 887546) and David Raines (01522 810843)

The Industrial Heritage Group mixes talks and presentations "at home" at Redwood Drive Community Centre off Brant Road in Waddington (usually in the winter) and there are visits to near and more distant venues of industrial interest (usually in the summer).

The "at home" meetings are 10.00am for 10.30 start on the 3rd Friday of each month. The "out and about" trips vary depending on availabe access to sites of interest.

In the study of a wide range of industries and services in the local area and further afield, we investigate past activities and compare these with current trends and future projects. We are following the progress of the Energy From Waste facility in North Hykeham and each year there has been a visit to a different faculty of Lincoln University . Memorable visits have been to the Red Arrows and the Jaguar Factory at Birmingham. This is a well-attended group with approximately 60 members on roll.
