The Story of Clean Water in the Black Country

Clean water and effective sanitation now form part of the fabric of modern day life in Britain. But this has not always been the case. In the mid nineteenth century, a new and deadly disease arrived in Britain, there was no known cause and no known cure. In the Black Country, within the space of six week over two and a half thousand people were dead….
…. this is the story of how John Snow proved the link between cholera and contaminated water. It established the need for an organised water supply and tells how the problem was overcome in the Black Country.

David Moore — Chairman of the Lichfield Waterworks Trust

Dave Moore’s association with history began inauspiciously. He was thrown off the History CSE course at secondary school for failing to show an interest and failing to hand in any course work. His working career started with an apprenticeship in the construction industry with an upward path leading to management in the private sector. Despite his worst efforts at school, Dave has always maintained his interest in history. He travels Britain widely in pursuit of his passion for industrial heritage and social history. Early retirement allowed Dave to deepen his interests by studying public history at Ruskin college, Oxford, for which he was awarded an MA. Dave’s other skills of photography, filmmaking and information technology support his work in the public history arena.

Please note: the talk will be in the brewery and we ask people to keep in mind that it may be cold. We need to closely control the temperature to relatively low levels in the brewery but we do try to heat the place for events.
