Victorian Freemasonry and the Building of Tilbury Docks
How a quarrel among Freemasons brought down a major company
Victorian Freemasonry and the Building of Tilbury Docks is a new book about Tilbury. It will be launched on 8th July at the TRAAC building, Ferry Road at 2.30 pm. It is the story of how and why the Tilbury Docks were built and how seven of those involved were freemasons who founded a new lodge. But while the docks were being built, they became involved in a dispute which eventually brought the mighty East & West India Docks Company to its knees.
There will be a short talk by Richard Burrell, the author, who will also sign copies of the book. The cover price is £12.99 but you can buy a copy on the day at a discount.
Entry free. Refreshments provided.
