      Heritage Lecture: Lead Poisoning in Sheffield 1880-1920

      The city of Sheffield suffered greatly from lead poisoning for a period of forty years around the turn of the century but few people understand the extend of this issue. At our heritage lecture on Wednesday 24th July, we will welcome Dr Mike Collins to tell us more about this fascinating period. The subject matter will include file cutting, smelting, the water supply and abortifacients. Dr Collins is a member of Sheffield Hospitals History Group which comprises ex-NHS staff who volunteer to care for the collection of artefacts from the hospitals. Times:    18:30 Doors Open    19:00 Lecture Begins    21:00 Lecture EndsFree refreshments are included in the admission price.
