2024 is the 300th Anniversary of the birth of John Smeaton and we will be celebrating with a special talk and Smeaton-inspired children's activity on our 9th June and 14th July open days.

Our volunteers have been diving into our archive to research RGM's connections with Smeaton, the father of civil engineering, and have prepared a fascinating talk about the significance of his work. Discover how his designs of mills, canals and more changed our site and the world!

These activities are free with admission so don't miss out!
