An illustrated lecture on Gloucestershire’s fabulous industrialist with James Rendell.
Much of Gloucestershire’s industrial heritage is directly attributable to the skill, ingenuity and inspiration of a gifted man and his son. So few people are aware of the Martyn family and what they gave to our County. This talk follows the life of Herbert Henry from his early life of poverty, in the back streets of Worcester, to the glory years, the founding of H.H. Martyn, in Cheltenham, the Gloucester Aircraft Company and Dowty. See the wonderful works of art, created by talented local men, which adorn the stately buildings and ships of the world.
