A HISTORY society has launched a series of talks.
Ellesmere Port Family and Local History Society is hosting regular talks at the National Waterways Museum.
The next talk is on Tuesday, June 15, on Canals and The Growth of the Town.
Society secretary Ella Popper will talk on the importance the canals had in the development of the town.
With some fascinating illustrations, people can learn how Ellesmere Port came into being servicing the industries of the Midlands and the North West.
It will look at materials and goods that came through the port and consider if, in this day and age with all our complex technology, canals still have a role to play.
Talks take place at 7.30pm in the Rolt Centre.
Entry is by the gate in the railings to the left of the main museum entrance, next to the canal.
Free parking is available and entrance is £3.
Membership of the Ellesmere Port Family and Local History Society is £10 and includes free entry to all talks. Free membership is given if four meetings are attended.
