For its 16th year, the Ross-on-Wye Science Society presents a forum of entertaining lectures, discussions and scientific facts.
The next meeting of the new 2016-17 season will be held on
Wednesday Evening, 5th October 2016 at 7.30 pm
on the River Wye
Dr Naylor Firth
The long tradition of shipbuilding on the Wye culminated with the Government taking over an existing yard in Chepstow in 1917 to create National Shipyard No 1. 20 ships were built there with displacements up to 6,500 tons, the last in 1923. The illustrated talk will review the build-up to the Yard's formation and the history of the vessels launched there.
The Society Meets in Castle Lodge Hotel at 7:30pm on the first Wednesday of the Month
The hotel has its own car park.
