Wednesday, 29th January – Our AGM followed by:

An illustrated talk by Nick Pollard – The Story of Queen Mary Reservoir

The business part of the meeting will be kept to a minimum, and followed by Nick’s talk.

Nick is Chair of the Sunbury and Shepperton History Society and will be looking at the planning of the reservoir, and the impact on the village of Littleton.

The construction programme was subject to change and disruption caused by the outbreak of WW1, and is fully illustrated through the different stages of the work.

The reservoir had a ‘Royal’ opening, then played a surprising role in developing secret weapons in WW2, before becoming a valuable leisure asset for the community,
