The science of the Severn Bore? In the latter half of the 19th and early 20th centuries, how and where the bore arose was a subject exercising the minds of some of the country’s best known scientists. Their thoughts, reasonings and differences, which centred largely on the Severn near Newnham, will be the subject of a talk by John Powell on Thursday 10 October at Armoury Hall, 7.30 pm. John’s findings will also appear in an article in the latest Forest of Dean Local History Society’s journal the New Regard, and copies of the journal will be on sale at the meeting (no member discounts available that evening).
John’s talks are always popular, so wise to get your (free) ticket from Newnham Post Office in advance or risk being turned away!
