Soap, Cider and Sewers

Walk: Mon 27 Jun 2016 6:30pm
Venue: Start: Museum Admission: £3

In this walk, we will be exploring soap, cider and sewers, as well as other aspects of Thornbury’s industrial history.  The photo shows Thornbury’s sewers being dug – at an astonishingly late date!

Join us and find out about gas and gunpowder, tallow and tanning, cisterns and saltpetre, along with other old trades and industries.

This two-hour walk will start from the Museum and will be covering a wide area of the town, taking in the High Street, The Plain, Pullins Green and venturing into part of Streamside Walk, eventually returning to the High Street via Park Road and Castle Street.


Tickets should be booked in advance by visiting, phoning or emailing the museum.
