Weymouth Harbour of Yesteryear - talk by Brian Jackson on Friday 6th March

View of WSC with a paddle steamer on the slipway at Hooker's Dock

We are fortunate to have been able to persuade Brian Jackson, an acknowledged expert on local history whose career as an engineer began with the Cosens steamship company, to come and talk about Weymouth harbour in the great age of steam - including a close look at the WSC premises, which included two of the Cosens slipways, now buried under the yards.

The talk, which will be illustrated from Brian's unique collection of historical photographs of the port, begins at 7.30pm and will last around an hour.The Galley and Bar will be open at 6pm, and we look forward to seeing you there.
