We had the following talks planned and hope these can be rescheduled:

  • The history of Londons water supply and the Kew Bridge steam museum.

  • The Tooting Common Heritage Project: 'How the lottery turned Tooting Common into a winner'.

  • 'The Impact of Industrialisation on London's Health' a project studying the bones of Londoners.

  • The archaeological work on the Battersea Power Station Site.

  • The Heathwall, arguably the least-understood of London's underground rivers.
  • __________________________________________________

    All our talks will be held on the last Friday of the month at the Friends' Meeting House, 59 Wandsworth High Street, London, SW18 2PT.

    They begin at 8.00 pm and end at about 9.15 pm, followed by tea and biscuits and a chance to chat to other members. 

    The Meeting House is opposite Wandsworth Town Hall, a short walk down from the Spread Eagle pub.
