Join David Robson from the Newland Furnace Trust for an insight into the industrial history of Newland Furnace and the surrounding area.
This talk will introduce the history of iron-making up to the arrival of the blast furnace. David will also discuss the location of the raw materials required for iron making in the Furness area and explore the future of these Furnace’s in various restoration projects.
David joins us as part of our Wednesday night ‘Soup Talks’ series during which we host locals or people passing through the area to share their stories and expertise with a captive audience over a bowl of homemade soup (served before or after the talk). Often illustrated, each talk lasts approximately an hour with time for questions and informal chat. The Stable Bar is open for drinks and snacks from 5pm until 9pm.
