Backbarrow Ironworks: Past, Present and Future           

An illustrated talk by Richard Sanderson 

Thursday. 5 March at 7.30 pm 

Admission £3.00

Backbarrow Ironworks were based around the iron furnace, one of the very first built in the north of England in 1711 and certainly the last of the stand alone furnaces, closing  in 1965. During its lengthy existence it used numerous metallurgical  techniques to ensure production remained competitive. The remains have been listed by Historic England and the current owners have invested a considerable amount of money into its consolidation and The Backbarrow Ironworks Heritage Trust has been formed to ensure that these very important listed buildings can be maintained for future generations and education. This illustrated talk by the Chairman of the Trustees will look at the past, the present and the trustees' hopes for the future.

The admission price includes tea or coffee and biscuits.
