Join us for our first talk of the season.

This will be by Jim Mole, Chairman of the River Weaver Navigation Society entitled ‘The Loss of the Royal Charter’ or the Golden Wreck.

This sail/steam powered vessel was built on the Dee  and wrecked on the North Coast of Anglesey in a major storm in 1859. The ship was carrying the equivalent of £120 million in gold and the disaster had far reaching repercussions for improved safety in inshore waters.

We will be having our usual raffle and card and book sales. Refreshments available.
