Fired Earth: Decline of the Industry 1935-2019

Chris Bateman, member

The final part of the story covers the decline of the industry from the inter-war period through the steady decline of the immediate post-war period to the decimation of the 1960s and 70s as steel making went over to the BOS process; gas works closed as natural gas took over; the clean air acts eliminated coal for heating; and concrete and plastic became dominant in building. So from 35 works only 2 remain

Unless otherwise stated meetings are held in The Caygill Rooms at The Piece Hall, Halifax (at South East of The Piece Hall, accessed via steps or lift to Second Floor) beginning at 7.30pm.

Visitors are welcome; a contribution to Society funds would be much appreciated.
