Appley Bridge meteorite talk – as featured on BBC TV and Radio. A special opportunity to listen to this popular talk by author Russell Parry on the 107th Anniversary of the event. This is a fascinating insight into the fall and discovery of the Appley Bridge meteorite in 1914, one of the largest meteorite strikes in the United Kingdom, as told through newspaper reports and archive documents of the time. The meteorite explosions, fireball, the confusion with enemy zeppelins and the confiscation of the meteorite by the police will all be revealed. Biography Russell Parry moved to the village of Appley Bridge in the North West of England in the early 1990’s and discovered the fascinating story of the 1914 meteorite strike on the village. His book was published to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the event in 2014, and Russell has subsequently presented his talk for many astronomical societies, groups, museums and on several transatlantic crossings & cruises on Queen Mary 2 and in New York at the American Museum of Natural History.
