Our Speakers at the coffee morning were Gerry Hindley, Mike Hewitt and Pam Clarke, who gave an interesting talk on the history of the water conduit in Cannock. The Conduit Trust was formed in 1735 to bring fresh water to Cannock. The trust is still active today, they have restored two of the original pumps, and placed plaques as near to the original sites of the pumps as possible. Pam told us how the plaque commemorating the generosity of Dr. Byrch came to be in a wall in Appledore Close.
