The Watkin Society has identified areas throughout Britain where Edward Watkin had a significant impact in his lifetime these include his great tower in London, which became Wembley Stadium, the thriving remains near Leicester of his Great Central Railway from Manchester to London and his Channel Tunnel near Dover.
Building on our continuing work locally in Manchester we have now established strong links with Grimsby and Cleethorpes. (Watkin virtually created Grimsby to become the biggest fishing port in the world and turned Cleethorpes from a little village into a national holiday resort.)
The local paper has heard about the Society and asked us to write an article for their weekend supplement. Click on the link below to view/download.
