Public Talks & Meetings
Clitheroe Gas Works
Every time you hear the BBC news, these days the subject of gas is uppermost. However, the BBC is way behind the curve, as we at CCS have been planning for months!
“Our next speaker is Peter Sellers, a Clitheroe man, who has lived virtually his whole life with the house that was located within the Clitheroe Gas Works. Although all of the former works have been demolished and the whole area decontaminated, Peter and his home still remain. Peter’s reminiscences are unique and not to be missed. All details on the poster.”

Talk by Jane Entwistle BSc (Hons) CEng FIStructE MICE
CCS’s Bellmanpark Limekilns Project Group (BLPG) has worked closely with Hanson Management and co-ordinated a successful bid to Historic England which was confirmed in September 2018. Following a competitive tender exercise overseen by BLBG and Hanson, in February 2019 Conservation Engineers, Thomasson, were appointed by Hanson Cement, and with the assistance of the Major Grant from Historic England (HE). This to undertake urgent investigations and Repair works to the limekilns which are now on HE’s Buildings at Risk Register. The Scope of the work envisaged as set out in HE’s Grant Award is:
Rebuilding of collapsed sections of the internal kiln walls,
Removal of corroding cast iron collars at the kiln bases,
Propping of deformed brickwork in vaulting,
Repair to loose brickwork in tunnels.
Jane Entwistle is project leader for this work.
We are pleased to introduce Dr David Johnson, who will provide his talk, “A Landscape Archaeology of North Craven”, which will be supported by a number of illustrations. Details of which can be seen on the attached poster.
Please fell free to invite friends and family who are not members of the society to join us, by payment of the £3 entry fee. (See full details on the poster).
Best wishes to you all and looking forward to seeing you all on 12th April.
