Sir Joseph Bazalgette (1819-1891) And the Cleansing of the Victorian Metropolis

 
  6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

2019 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Sir Joseph Bazalgette, and will see the building of the first major addition to the system he created to prevent sewage entering the Thames. The Thames Tideway Tunnel is now finally making its way 16 miles beneath the course of the river from Acton to the Thames Estuary, to intercept storm water which would otherwise enter the Thames. 

The illustrated lecture will examine Bazalgette’s achievement and the work involved in building this latest addition to it.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture 

Cost: Free of Charge
