This is a free 1/2 day event starting a 14:00 at which Geoff Horsman will give two talks that outline the development and history of turbines with particular reference to the work of Parsons. The other talk will be in the afternoon while this one will be in the evening.
There will also be an opportunity to examine Parson’s No 2 Turbine which is held by Kelham Island Museum. Turbine No 1 is understood to have been the prototype while Turbine No 2 is almost certainly the first production model.
