Fletton – Building the Brickopolis
Sadie commenced her study of Fletton with research into the effect of population migration to supply the ever increasing demands of the brick industry in Fletton during the period 1841 – 1911. She has now brached out into a wider study of the Fletton community, her work has been recognised as a ‘One Place’ Study, she has published several articles on the area, and writes a monthly blog.
Sadie’s talk will focus on the development of this important brick industrial suberb of Peterborough and the people who made it so successful. Alas, there is very little showing above ground now of the proud industry.
