DSCT Members Social Meeting – Talks for 2023

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).

In 2023, this meeting will be held the fourth Tuesday of each month. Meetings will continue to be held at the First Floor, Canal Cottages, Draycott DE72 3PE
