Medieval treasure in the Thames: accident, rubbish or ritual?

Monday 19 March, 7.30pm
Gunnersbury Park: the Place and the People

Monday 16 April, 7.30pm
Lost Railways of Chiswick and Brentford
An illustrated talk by Stephen Hine, looking at the tracks, stations and sidings that served the Brentford and Chiswick area in the past, many of which have disappeared or fallen into disuse.
