About the Event

We are delighted that Eric Sorensen Ex Chief Executive of the London Docklands Development Corporation (LDDC) has agreed to speak . 

Subject, Regenerating Docklands : What was it really like ?

Plus our own local historian Jeremy Batch, will present;

The First Limehouse Revolution: 1850 - 1970

What connects Limehouse Basin, Tower Bridge, the USS Enterprise and a National Trust property in Northumberland? All made use of hydraulic machinery conceived by hydraulic motor and the weight-loaded accumulator.

At Limehouse Basin we have one of his hydraulic accumulator towers (the best

surviving example in Britain) which once drove the cranes, capstans, lock

gates and bridges of the Regent's Canal Dock, now celebrating its 200th

anniversary.  Within a mile's radius, there is still an extensive range of

other machinery to be seen .

Refreshments will be available before and during the interval.

Looking forward to seeing you there: LCF
