Visit by The Lord Roberts (steam engine) on 2 April

The Lord Roberts steam engine will be visiting the Medway campus on Tuesday 2 April.

The Lord Roberts was built in the early 1900s and used on the campus when the HMS Pembroke Royal Naval Barracks were being built to bring bricks from the local brickyard to the campus.

The Lord Roberts is making a visit to the Historic Dockyard this week and the owners would like to bring the engine back onto the campus on Tuesday 2 April.

The programme for the visit is:

·         12:30 – outside the Hawke building

·         14:00-14:30 – outside the Student Hub

Please feel free to drop by and see this excellent example of early 20th century engineering.
