All sorts of Newsletters - GLIAS

GLIAS Newsletter - February 2009
- includes a very long list of interesting looking lectures. Note GLIAS lectures:
18th February - Tim Smith on Sarson's Vinegar (the whiff of vinegar which used to hit us on the trains just before London Bridge Station!)
18th March Stationary Steam - John Porter. This is about Kew Bridge Engines Trust
20th May - AGM - and Robert Stephenson by Michael Bailey.
all at Robin Brook Centre, St.Bartholomew's Hospital, 6.30
21st March Industrial Archaeology Study Day with Denis Smith Birkbeck College. bookings 020 7631 6627
25th April SERIAC The Guildhall Winchester 01962 855200

The newsletter also contains an item about the opening of the new DLR Station in Woolwich - and the small amount of press coverage it generated.

Someone else has picked up issues around Payne's Wharf - and quoted the 'Lorry Drivers Bible' on how to get there and what to do when you did.

There is an article about Grants available from AIA and how to get them and what they give them for -industrial heritage assets!
