"Local Industry" is the theme of this course of illustrated talks, with different topics presented by experts in their field. These will include the extractive industries, pottery (especially that of Farnham and Farnborough), the Iron and Glass of the Weald together with other local industries such as leather and gunpowder and urban industrial buildings (e. g. Friary Brewery). The course will also focus on wind and water mills and means of communication in the area (e. g. road, canal, rail).
