Lecture meeting on 10th October 2022

Building Llandrindod

Talk by: Stephen Ashley

Llandrindod was, for a while, at the cutting edge of building construction. Stephen will encourage you to look more closely as you move around the town; to see the fascinating bits that you have probably missed, the quirky bits that raise a smile, the international influences and the bits that really didn’t work.

Watch on Zoom

Speaker biography

Of Welsh and Canadian as well as English extraction, Stephen grew up in the Vale of Evesham. He trained and practised as a chartered surveyor before going walkabout for a while in Italy. He then found, somewhat to his surprise, that he had become a specialist journalist in the construction industry press where he stayed for 15 years.

Seeking a better work-life balance, Stephen brought his family back to Mid-Wales where he worked as a building surveyor for 25 years until his retirement. Somewhat to his surprise, he finds himself just as busy as before!
