The Newcomen Centenary
This year the Newcomen Society marks the centenary of its foundation in 1920. Many events were planned to celebrate this. However, given Government advice on the likely duration of the Coronavirus epidemic, we are working on the principle of postponement rather than cancellation of events. Future plans for these events will be publicised in the coming weeks.
