17th November – “Shackleton’s Endurance” – Andrew Lound

The story isn’t over yet…

… Earlier this year (February 2022) Sir Ernest Shackleton’s long lost ship Endurance, was discovered! Located at a depth of 3,008m in the waters of Antarctica and 4 miles south of its last recorded position. The ship’s exact whereabouts had been unknown for 100 years. The debate about the future of the ship continues.

We are very fortunate to have Andrew Lound visiting us in Clent with his illustrated presentation on Shackleton’s abortive journey of discovery; A famous journey that took him through Antarctica’s icy wastes on the ship Endurance.

Join us as Andrew recounts the final, dreadful months following the ship becoming icebound and the crews eventual escape across the ice and their legendary trek across the frozen wilderness in an against-all-odds fight for survival.

A chilling tale for a November evening.

Clent History Society warmly welcome you to join us for Andrew’s talk.  Wear a warm jumper if you wish but we will have the heating on and warm drinks are included in the admission price.

£2.50 per person.

Thursday 17th November – 8pm (7:15 doors)

Clent Parish Hall, DY9 9QT
