The 1722 Waggonway Project are proud to launch a new publication – ‘The Work Journals of William Dickson – Wright at Cockenzie 1717-1745 – The Man who Helped Build Scotland’s First Railway’.
Following a lengthy transcription process by members of the 1722 Waggonway Project, the Scottish Record Society have published this book as Volume 48 in their New Series.
Dr Aaron Allen and Ed Bethune FSA Scot of the 1722 Waggonway Heritage Group will give a presentation about how the journals were found, the transcription by the project team and the significance of the journals to our local and national heritage.
Copies of the book will be for sale at the event. Tickets for the book launch are FREE!
