April 2019-Russell Yeomans “ The Gunton Park water powered sawmill”

Event Details

  • Date:

Gunton water powered sawmill

The Sheringham History Group meeting on April 3rd will be given by Russell Yeomans on the topic of the Gunton Park water powered sawmill.

Featuring on national TV in both drama and documentaries, the story will run from initial building and operations of the mill in 1824, through decline, followed by restoration from 1988 onwards as a working history museum
A highlight of Russell’s talk will be his description of the part the mill played in producing the detailed wooden carriage for the Mo museum cannon.

Russell has kindly stepped in to replace the previously advertised talk which will now be given later in the year. Roger Richardson will now be giving us his “History of the Sheringham Fire Service” talk in November.

Please note that this meeting will not now feature the AGM , which will instead be held in September, ahead of the next season of talks.

 Meet at The Mo, Sheringham Museum

Please use entrance on Lifeboat Plain

The talk starts at 7.30 with coffee/tea from 7.00.

Visitors are asked for a donation of £2.
