Gloucestershire Archives: Secrets Revealed

Anything that moves!

Wednesday 23 November, 1 - 2pm.  Free of charge

It’s all aboard the archives as this month’s presentation will be on the subject of transport! 


We hope to include an example or two of literally anything that has moved in the county of Gloucestershire throughout history.  We’ll look at horses, boats, barges, ships, carts, stage coaches, traction engines, tractors, motorcycles, cars, charabancs, buses, lorries, trains, trams, air balloons, gliders, aeroplanes and even a space ship!!  All this activity has dramatically changed the county as well with the growth of all the different types of infrastructure that transport has required from tracks, roads, canals, docks, railways and airports.  

Delving into the county’s archives we hope that we can demonstrate all these transport types and the changes that they have brought, as well as providing some interesting and thought provoking information. 

A Gloucestershire heritage transport extravaganza!
