Twelve underground places in London that you can visit.

Londoners are used to going underground, being home to the world’s first underground metropolitan railway.

We have perhaps become a little blasé about entering subterranean spaces.

However there is more underneath London than the Tube, and in this virtual tour on Zoom, Rob will tell you about twelve more subterranean London spaces you can visit.

Crypts, caves, tunnels, vaults and bunkers beneath London will be revealed along with their history and the stories of the people that made them.

Bedford’s Highlanders – A Talk by Richard Galley (72-82)

Thursday 14 January 2021 from 19:30

Hosted by  Old Bedfordians Club

Between 15th and 18th, August 1914 around 17,000 Scottish territorial soldiers arrived in Bedford for training.

These were men of the Highland Division (later to become the 51st Highland Division).

The kilted troops became a familiar and welcome sight in the town and surrounding countryside. Largely as a consequence of the dispersal of billets throughout the Borough. Bedfordians took the Highlanders to their hearts.

Strong, genuine and lasting bonds were quickly forged between the Bedfordians and the Scots. Several Bedford families can trace their connections back to Highland Division men who returned to the Town and made it their home after the war ended.

Join Richard Galley (72-82), supported by a wealth of contemporary photographs, as he examines the impact of the Scots’ friendly invasion of Bedford Borough during the first 9 months of World War One.

London Sewers – The Whole Dirty Story

Sunday 10 January 2021 from 20:00

The Great Stink.

Join for a virtual trawl through the vast sewer systems beneath the city, using pictures, video footage and eye witness accounts.

We will follow the story of London’s waste, from the early days of the ” night soil” collectors, to the stinking River Fleet. Where Londoners disposed of everything from dead cows to human corpses.

To Joseph Bazalgette, the engineer who designed 450 miles of tunnels under London (and the Embankment) to clean up the city.

The Fastest Eye on the Sky: The Vera Rubin Observatory

Friday 8 January 2021 from 19:30

Hosted by The Astronomical Society of EdinburghThe Astronomical Society of Edinburgh

Talk by Prof. Aaron Roodman, Dept. of Particle Physics & Astrophysics, Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics & Cosmology, SLAC NationalWhat is the Universe made of? In modern cosmology, only 4% of the universe is deeply understood, while the other 96%, Dark Energy and Dark Matter, remains a mystery. The Vera Rubin Observatory, currently under construction, will observe billions of galaxies, billions of stars in our own galaxy the Milky Way, as well as millions of objects closer to home in the solar system. Every night over a ten-year survey, the Rubin Observatory will observe much of the night sky, so that every portion of the sky will be imaged nearly a thousand times. In this talk, I will describe the Rubin observatory and especially its camera, the world’s largest digital imager now under construction at SLAC, and this remarkable set of observations, and how we will be able to “see” the dark portion of our universe in unprecedented detail.
Members will join via Zoom and visitors are welcome on our YouTube channel. We will also have a presentation on the Sky in January.
