Mike Houlston introduced Dr Graham Dodd to speak on the History of the Shropshire Union Canal.
Graham's talk was illustrated by many well known landmarks of the canal and he explained it's relationship with the railway and its use for transporting coal, iron, cheese from Cheshire to the Midlands and detailing the various types of barges used over the years.
David Fishburne thanked Graham for an excellent presentation and hoped that he would return to the Club and give another of his famed talks.
