Regular readers of this blog will know that I am an active member of the South Western Circle, the historical Society for those interested in primarily the London & South Western Railway but also its successors the Southern Railway and also the Southern Region of British Railways, Western Sections. You may also have possibly read my dedicated page on the Circle here.
One of the strengths of the Circle are its five informative meetings a year, where a mix of speakers give illustrated talks on subjects of South Western interest. The next meeting is this Saturday, 10th September, in Exeter. This meeting in fact has two presentations: Firstly by guest Phil Collins (no not the Genesis one) on appropriately ‘Exeter Queen Street’; and secondly by Circle committee member Peter Swift titled ‘Reflections on Alan Cooper photographs’.
The meeting is being held at the The Mint Methodist Church, in Rowe Hall, Fore St, Exeter. EX4 3AT, starting at 1.30pm and last until approximately 4pm. Attendance is also open to non members is free of charge, refreshments are available along with the Circle Sales Stand of all the latest LSWR / SR / BR(s) related books and publications at discounted prices. Directions on how to find the venue can be found here.
If you are one the more South Western based readers of this blog or fancy a trip that way you would be more than welcome to spend a a pleasant and informative afternoon in the company of like minded people.
