Sheffield Zeppelin raid subject for July meeting

Richard Godley of the Sheffield Zeppelin Study Group will be examining the perhaps forgotten Zeppelin raid over Sheffield, which occurred in 1916.

Our meeting on Monday July 15 will hear from Richard about this raid which occurred on the night of Monday 25th September 1916. Between Burngreave and through Attercliffe to Darnall, a single Zeppelin dropped 36 bombs. There were 28 deaths and approximately 150 buildings destroyed or damaged.

Normal arrangements for the meeting apply and we will be back in the main St Thomas church centre – Chatsworth Road, Chesterfield, S40 3AW.

Admission is free for members and for visitors the charge is £3. Free parking is available on site or on neighbouring streets.

Doors normally open from around 7pm for a 7.30pm start and there is an opportunity to obtain light refreshments before and after our presentation (50p per cup of tea or coffee).
