2017 Talks Season: Clifton Rocks Railway
Kingswood Heritage Museum
Kingswood Heritage Museum's summer series of talks continues with the intriguing story of the Clifton Rocks Railway, which travelled a vertical distance of about 60 metres in connecting Hotwells to the top of the gorge above.
The speaker will be Peter Davey, one of the leading historians of the local transport scene. Peter is chairman of the Rocks Railway Preservation Society, and he will tell us about the origins of the railway in 1893 and its subsequent development. Peter will go on to describe its history following closure as a transport link in 1934, and the efforts of the Preservation Society to bring it back into use.
The final talk of this season will be: Monday 16 October : Cyril Routledge “Curiouser and Curiouser”
All talks take place at the Museum commencing at 7.30 pm. The admission fee is £3, which includes light refreshments.
