Biography:

I am a published historian based in Berkshire who specialises in industrial and railway history and the history of science. My current areas of research are the aircraft and systems of the RAF, industrial development in the Victorian period, and the development of the railway and canal systems in Britain in the mid to late 19th Century. I am currently researching a PhD in economic history and am a tutor with the WEA.

My talks appeal to a broad range of audiences and sizes of groups. I’m happy to adapt the length and format for your requirements. My aim is to educate and entertain, leaving the audience with a new perspective and wanting to learn more.

A 20 year career in technology, working with British and international manufacturing companies has given me a unique perspective as an historian.

Feedback from previous talks: "Richard had clearly done a massive amount of research and preparation. He is an excellent presenter very knowledgeable and engaging speaker. It was informative and thought provoking."

"I found the whole subject fascinating and wanted to learn more."
