Thomas Brassey back in Penkridge on his 204th birthday

Any Railway Enthusiasts in Penkridge (and I understand there are quite a few) will surely know the name THOMAS BRASSEY. He was the man who built our Railway Viaduct across the River Penk which brought the railway and its Station to Penkridge. Thomas Brassey was perhaps the world's finest Railway Engineer and our viaduct was his first job. He went on to build railways all over the world.

On Saturday 7 November, the Thomas Brassey Society will be holding a Luncheon in Penkridge at the Hatherton Country House Hotel (a short distance from the viaduct)to celebrate his 204th birthday. Anyone with an interest in Thomas Brassey would be welcome to attend. Please contact me by phone (712733) or by email: and I will give you full details.
