Event description

Description

Join Kevin Powell for a short walk around the Nottingham Canal Company’s Wharf.
Local historian and member of Nottingham's Civic Society Kevin will tell a story of Nottingham's first balloon ascent in 1813 and the ‘Dreadful Catastrophe’ when 21 barrels of gunpowder blew up in 1818.
We will look at the early history of the canal and a Queen’s visit when the railways arrived in Nottingham.

This is part of Enchanted Water 2019 taking place on Light Night.
