Report Of Talk At The Belfry

Those who attended the talk by "Sett" on Saturday the 12th August on 'Maps and their uses' found much to interest them.

The talk itself was prepared by Sheila Paul, who is a Map Research Officer by profession and a founder member of the British Cartographical Society.  Her paper and Sett's lecturing style proved a happy combination.

The period after the talk itself was spent looking at a fantastic variety of maps which Sett had assembled and which ranged from simple classroom maps of Europe to close up pictures of the surface of the moon.  In particular, the aerial photographic map of the island of Tonga caught the imagination of those present.

After a talk as interesting as this was, the motto seems to be that it pays to keep ones eyes and ears open and to turn up to these functions which are held at the Belfry - usually at half past seven on a Saturday evening!
