  • Mansfield and Pinxton Railway
    19:30 -21:00
    12/03/2021

    Speaker: Denis Hill

    Organised by the Industrial Archaeology Section

    This illustrated talk presents the full 200-year history of the Mansfield & Pinxton Railway, which is the oldest continuously running commercial railway in England. It will also take a glimpse into the factors that led up to its formation and hopes for the future. We will also take into consideration how it supported the local economies, especially that of Mansfield. Recently a dedicated group celebrated the railway’s amazing 200th anniversary with the help of a National Lottery Heritage Grant, which meant that they were able to immortalise this railway and its record-breaking anniversary and helped to raise its profile.

    Speaker: Tim Bennett

    Local Yokel has Howard Carter moment – the Elka Project was born from an accidental discovery of just two ring ditch anomalies, found in a local wood. The speaker gathered as much information as he could and submitted the information to the governing bodies of archaeology within his local council – this has now developed in to a Community Project’.
