We were delighted to welcome 14 members of the Enfield Society to the RSA Interpretation Centre yesterday as part of a tour given by Ray Tuthill, President of the Royal Small Arms Factory Apprentices Association.

The tour took in not only the Royal Small Arms Factory but the King George V Pumping Station, Brimsdown Power Station, Enfield Lock and the four pubs that surrounded the Factory in its heyday. Upon returning to the RSA Island Centre Society members viewed the displays in the Interpretation Centre and a chance to climb the clock tower to view our fine John Thwaites birdcage clock dating from 1783.

The Society also enjoyed the hospitality of the RSA Trust, learning about how the RSA Island Centre has generated over £5 million in funding for good causes across Enfield and the Lee Valley. We would like to thank Bob Fowler of the Enfield Society and Ray Tuthill for arranging the day.

If you would like to arrange a group tour of the RSA Interpretation Centre please do not hesitate to get in touch with us so that we can plan a tour that’s right for you and your party.
