Visit to Beeleigh Mill

Visit to Beeleigh Mill on  Sunday 9th July  as guests of the Beeleigh Mill Restoration Group

If you were at our talk on the 23rd May, you will know that our next event is a visit to Beeleigh Mill on the afternoon of the 9th July. From a personal point of view I have to say that I found the talk fascinating and I can’t wait to see this historic site in the flesh as it were! 

I know that some people have been having trouble with the printed website address for registration. So you can use the link below instead to register.

Registration is highly desirable to help us avoid bottlenecks in the Engine Room tours, so please register if you can. If you can’t, don’t despair, the Mill restoration group have assured us that if you turn up on the day, you will be fitted in, even if you don’t have a ticket! 

Two weeks later, weather permitting, we will be holding our Barbecue for boaters and members at Rushes Lock on 23rd July. This is always a pleasant and relaxed social event at one of the more remote and beautiful spots on the navigation. More details nearer the time, but please note the date in your diary.

You can always get the up-to-date list from our website events page at:  http://www.chelmercanaltrust.co.uk/events.htm

Yours Sincerely - William Marriage.
