The rise and fall of the bath stagecoach – talk

Friday, September 15, 2017
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Tolls, Taverns and Turnpikes – Today we think nothing of travelling from Bath to London in ninety minutes. In early Georgian times that journey could take twenty times as long. This illustrated talk examines the story of the stagecoach from London to the West and the challenges facing operators and passengers. Horrors, hold-ups and hilarity are all part and parcel of this entertaining talk from Dickon Povey.

Tickets: £8

Venue: The Mission Theatre, 32 Corn Street, BA1 1UF
