NORFOLK INDUSTRIAL ARCHAEOLOGY SOCIETY
The Following Meetings have been Scheduled.
We hold our monthly meetings at St Martin at Palace Church.
This is the flint church in its churchyard, adjacent to the Law Courts, near the Adam & Eve PH and Wig & Pen PH.
St. Martin at Palace, 15 St Martin-At-Palace Plain, Norwich NR3 1RW
The meetings will start at 7.30pm as usual, on the first Thursday of the month.
As usual there will be tea and coffee after the meeting, and there are two pubs nearby for those wishing to continue discussions.
There is easy car parking nearby. Some free on street, some metered and St Helen’s Carpark has an evening charge of £1.60. The venue is a four minute walk from Tombland bus stops, down Palace Street.
The map below shows the location, the zoomable map at the bottom nearly gets the location right. ,
Thursday 5th April 2018 - 7.30 St Martin at Palace Church
AIA Trips and excursions - John Jones
John is a regular attender of both the AIA annual conference, and also excursions abroad based on Industrial Archaeology. In the past he has given short presentations on members night about these, this time he has a whole evening. He will include information about forthcoming events should you be enthused to go on one of these trips as well. From past experience his talks are most informative and show aspects of industrial archaeology we may not think about.
Thursday 3rd May 2018 - 7.30 St Martin at Palace Church
Repairing Historic Buildings with the correct materials.
Mark Wilson (Surveyor of the Fabric, Norwich Historic Churches Trust)
Flintwork, carved stonework, lime mortar are just some of the materials used. Interiors may need limewashing, whilst monuments and wall paintings present additional problems.
