Newcomen has its headquarters at the Science Museum in central London, where an annual programme of lectures takes place. There are currently seven other regional branches of the society around Britain who all offer regular lectures, visits and associated events. The various branches and links to their associated event programmes can be viewed on the Newcomen Regional page.

How Newcomen Is Funded

The work of Newcomen is funded by membership subscriptions, investment income, donations and legacies. Previous bequests have allowed us to digitise the papers in our Journal and subsidise the organisation of key events. The development of this website was made possible by an exceptionally generous bequest from a member.

If you would like to make a donation towards the work of Newcomen, please contact the Administrator, Sarah-Jane Stagg at
