November Zoom Meeting

Our first ever Zoom meeting!

Tuesday, 10 November 2020 starting at 7.30 pm.

So, exciting news.  After the very long break your committee felt it was time to start up the History Society meetings again – but as we cannot actually meet in person, we are going to do this via Zoom.

We have Mike Nevell, Head of Archaeology at Salford University, delving into the depths of the Bridgewater Canal.  A free meeting, all from the pleasures of your own home, glass of wine or beer in hand.

Do join us.  Email

and the Zoom meeting details will be sent to you.  Look forward to seeing you.

For those of you who have not tried Zoom before, it is easy to use – all you need is to be able to get on the internet and an email address to receive the meeting details.   Even if you do not have a microphone or camera on your computer you can still take part by watching and listening via your computer screen.  If you wish to comment on the talk you can do so by joining via your telephone.

Our initial talk will be on our usual time and day in the month, that is Tuesday, 10 November starting at 7.30 pm.   For this first meeting under the new system, which will be free of charge, we have Mike Nevell who is Head of Archaeology at the University of Salford, and he will be telling us about the archaeology of the Bridgewater Canal.

Mike’s research interests include the archaeology of industrialisation, community archaeology and historic buildings and he has more than 29 years’ experience in archaeology, as a consultant, lecturer, and researcher.  He is a very experienced speaker and I am sure that his presentation will be fascinating with many interesting slides.

To get us started on our first Zoom meeting we need you to email using the following address to express your interest in joining the meeting.

We will initially send you an acknowledgement and then nearer the time send you a Zoom link and some helpful notes on the use of Zoom (for those of you who have perhaps not used this application before), together with the meeting ID and password so that you can join the meeting.

We will also send you a reminder in advance of the meeting.

Also as this is a new venture for the Society we are very happy to open up the meeting to non-members, so if any of your friends and relations, from all over the country, or even the world, would also like to join us please ask them to contact us using the enrolzoom email address, so we can have their email details to send them the meeting information.  Geography is no limitation, but numbers are limited. Priority will be given to members.

So, please email us on

so that you can receive the meeting details and we look forward to seeing you on screen on Tuesday 10 November.
