Matthew Murray: what next?

Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

Interesting North is “a one-dayer of interesting, unexpected and original” stuff at Cutler’s Cutlers’ Hall, Sheffield, on Saturday 13 November 2010. It’s like the other Interestings, only in the North. Credit to Tim Duckett for making it happen.

Among other things there will be talks about Eyjafjallajökull, cake, riding side-saddle, feral children and what you can learn from Lego.

My contribution is 10 minutes on the story of Matthew Murray and James Watt Junior, on which, in keeping with the rules of Interesting, I am obliged to Deliver a brand-new talk and Share something I haven’t shared before.

Tickets are a steal at £20 for a whole day’s entertainment and enlightenment. Hope to see you there.

  1. I guess you have been in contact with Middleton Railway Leeds Archivist, but perhaps you could summarise your presentations in short words and forward to Middleton Railway for publication [ much of the information will be known to long standing members but your take on it could be appreciated – in their regular members’ journal – along with the questions you asked in your ‘What Next’ section as someone whom doesnt have internet access – or has not yet found your blog , might have some further clues and infomation.

  2. Hi, Thanks for the suggestion. I did drop a few copies of the “Good Engines” newspaper off at the Middleton Railway and would be pleased to contribute to the newsletter or learn more from their members. Do you know who I should contact? Regards, Matt
