The Great Stink of 1858 – Chiswick Pier Trust

28 May @ 7:00 pm9:00 pm BST

The Great Stink of 1858 and Bazalgette’s pollution solution.

Stephen Fielding, Heritage Projects Manager for charity Habitats & Heritage presents a talk on the period known as ‘The Great Stink’ which referred to the deeply polluted state of the River Thames during the summer of 1858.

Prepare to be disgusted by the tale of a river that was used as a sewer and as a result polluted the drinking water of thousands of Londoners who died from Cholera.

But the tale doesn’t end there – Stephen’s talk will look at the pollution solution provided by Sir Joseph Bazalgette, the Victorian engineer responsible for creating London’s sewage system.
