Spotlight on History: The M1 - how was it built?
In the 1950s, a plan was developed to create the M1 motorway, linking London to Yorkshire. Using wartime airfield construction techniques and battling extremely tough winter conditions, the southern stretch of the M1 near St Albans was built in 18 months, opening in 1959. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Institute of Civil Engineers, find out more about this amazing civil engineering project so close to home.

Wednesday 28th February, 7.30pm – 8.30pm

£5.00 (or £15.00 for all four Spotlight on History talks).
