The Croydon Natural History and Scientific Society is one of the borough’s longest established and most respected history groups, which organises a range of talks, walks and other events.
It’s first function for 2019 is a talk by Roger Squires on the Regent’s Canal.
The Regent’s Canal was built between 1811 and 1820. It connected the Grand Junction Canal’s Paddington Arm, opened in 1801, to the Thames at Limehouse, where a new interchange dock also was built.
The presentation reviews the history of the canal and then takes the audience on a journey along its length.
Most CNHSS talks, including next week’s, take place in the Small Hall at East Croydon United Reformed Church, Addiscombe Grove, Croydon CR0 5LP starting at 7.45pm.
East Croydon United Reformed Church is convenient for East Croydon station, Tramlink and many buses, and there is some parking available on site.
If you are not a member, you are still very welcome to attend. There is no entrance fee for our talks, but we do invite non-members to consider a small donation of £2.
