Ships Sail Right into the Heart of Hull – Barton Civic Society

The first of Barton Civic Society’s 2022 Public Lecture Programme begins on Friday (February 18) with Colin Cooper who describes how the character of Hull has been shaped by its geography and history. Hull was once the UK’s third port and the world’s largest fishing port. The quays and docks, railways and industry dominated the townscape, while ocean-going vessels and trawlers sailed right into the heart of the city.

The talk, starting at 2pm,  is held in the Joseph Wright Hall on Queen Street and admission for Civic Society members is free. Non-members £2.

Please note this is an afternoon lecture.
