SIHG Zoom Meeting: The Story of the Queen Mary Reservoir

Thursday, 18 January, 2024 - 10:00

The talk looks at the massive construction programme needed to build what was then the world's largest free standing reservoir and its supporting infrastructure, as well as the village that was partially destroyed to make way for it, and its Royal opening. Along the way we look at the surprising use to which it was put in the second world war. This talk will be given by Nick Pollard, Curator of Spelthorne Museum in Staines.
