Friends of Seafield House are mounting a display exhibition on Sir William Arrol in Rozelle House’s National Science & Engineering Week 2013 programme, which takes place over the weekend 16 & 17 March.
The theme of National Science & Engineering Week 2013 is Invention & Discovery and FoSH will focus its its contribution on Sir William’s engineering inventions & innovative construction techniques, which revolutionised engineering & construction in the early 20th century. By focusing on the Arrol Gantry, Sir William’s part in the building of building of ships including the Titanic will be explored. It is fitting that Sir William Arrol is included in this year’s programme, as we mark the Centenary of his death in Ayr on 20 February 1913. Information will also be available on FoSH and their campaign to save Seafield House in Ayr, which was Sir William Arrol’s home for many years.
Venue: Rozelle House, Rozelle Park, Ayr KA7 4NQ
Time: 16 & 17 March 10.30 – 3.30
