DSCT Members Social Meeting – Talks for 2024

The Derby & Sandiacre Canal Trust invites a guest speaker to present to the Trust on a topic of interest. From experience they are usually very engaging and interesting (at least for those that enjoy Canals, History, Engineering, Nature, and all things in between).
