Going Forth: Industrial Heritage beyond the Bridges

Going Forth: Industrial Heritage beyond the Bridges

In this lecture, Tom Parnell delves into the Firth of Forth’s industrial past.

Venue: St Andrew’s and St George’s West Church, 13 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 2PA
Time: 6.30pm
Cost: £5 (Students free). Non-members welcome. Members may attend 6 lectures for £25.

The Firth of Forth is dominated by a growing collection of celebrated bridges. But along the shoreline are less well-known remnants of an industrial past that were of enormous importance. The lecture will explore railways, limekilns, distilleries and power stations: some gone, some surviving, but all now out of use. Tom Parnell is an architectural historian, and is currently a Senior Casework Officer for Historic Environment Scotland.

Bookings on Eventbrite – tickets will also be available on the night.
