Thames Crossings - Ferries, Fords and Bridges - a TWHAS talk

February's talk to The Wallingford Historical and Archaeological Society (TWHAS) will be given by Steve Capel-Davies. He will present 'Thames Crossings - Ferries, Fords and Bridges'. Steve has had an extensive career involving rivers, and will draw on his personal experiences and knowledge of the River Thames. The River Thames has been very important as a key route for trade but it has also been a major barrier to those wanting to cross it! This talk on Ferries, Fords and Bridges will look at how these have evolved over the years including local examples, such as at Wallingford where the bridge has at times had drawbridges installed, been destroyed by a flood, rebuilt and widened. The talk will be preceded by a short (as usual!) AGM.

This talk will be held on Friday 12th Feb, 7.45 pm for 8pm at Methodist Church Centre, St Leonard’s Square, Wallingford. Visitors (£3) are most welcome.
