Rescue and Reclamation
June 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmSee below
The landscape legacy of two local industries comes under the spotlight: From Chemicals to Conservation is the story, told by Stuart Garfoot, of how Waters’ Edge Country Park was created from reclaimed industrial land left behind by a century of chemical and fertilizer manufacturing around Barton Haven. Simon Wellock then shifts the focus in Bricks to Bitterns to the abandoned clay pits along the Humber bank, left behind by Barton’s brick and tile manufacturers but which became the wildlife sanctuary we know as Far Ings National Nature Reserve.
Talks take place at the Wilderspin & National School Museum in the Joseph Wright Hall, Queen Street [DN18 5QP]. There is car parking and facilities for disabled visitors. For up-to-date information visit:
