At this month’s meeting of the North East London Astronomical Society, Dr John Fisher will give a presentation about James Bradley (1692–1762), a local unsung hero of science who proved the Earth orbits the sun from observations made in Wanstead.

“The consequences of Bradley’s discoveries made in a modest dwelling on the site of the present Co-op were far-reaching,” said Dr Fisher, whose presentation will take place at Wanstead House on 18 February from 1.30pm (visitors welcome).
