Lindley Mechanics' Institute

There's not much to see here at the moment but we hope to add more details about this topic at a later date :-)

Lindley Mechanics' Institute was established circa 1838.[1]

During December 1847, Dr. Firth of Hull delivered a course of three lectures on astronomy.[2]

The institute erected a mechanics' hall on Lidget Street in 1849.

Members of the institute formed the Naturalists' Society in 1895, with Seth Lister Mosley as the president.
