Howard Smith - 'The Snake Road'

Wednesday April 20th 2016

This talk explains why this most unusual former turnpike road came to be planned and built and why, though it was a feat of highway engineering, it was a commercial failure. Its history post-turnpike is covered up to the present day and its relevance to Sheffield's communications is examined. Copies of Howard Smith's book on 'The Snake Road' will also be for sale.
