AGM and Chairman’s Address – 26th February 2004

Our Annual General Meeting was followed, as is traditional, by a talk from our retiring chairman, Greg Smye-Rumsby. He gave us a talk on The Craig Telescope. He has been investigating the telescope’s history for some time, and has managed to learn quite a bit about Craig and his telescope. He even managed to track down a photograph of the telescope, probably taken after it had fallen into dis-use. His talk was illustrated with computer-generated images of the scope, based on the photograph, known drawings and etchings, and information gathered from the small excavation performed on the site as part of Time Team’s Big Dig. There is clearly still more to be learnt about this telescope, so we expect Greg will update us from time to time.
