Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the meteorite fall exactly 100 years to the day

Join us to enjoy a fascinating insight into the fall and discovery of the Appley Bridge meteorite in 1914, as told through newspaper reports and archive documents of the time. The meteorite explosions, fireball, the confusion with enemy Zeppelins, the confiscation of the meteorite by the police and its subsequent release for analysis will all be told. A sample of the actual meteorite will be on display together with the beautiful cast of the meteorite. There will also be samples to handle from the British and Irish Meteorite Society.

‘The Appley Bridge Meteorite’ book, launched at the event, includes previously unseen images of the meteorite from around the World.
Signed copies will be available for purchase.

Places are limited so to book please phone 01942 828128 or email
