Thomas Fowler and his Thermosiphon (Bideford Branch)

Fri. 15 March 2019 at 2:00 pm

Born 1777 in Great Torrington, Thomas Fowler was an inventor whose most notable invention was the thermosiphon. This forms the basis of early hot water and central heating systems and a surprising range of applications even today. He patented this in 1828 and the first system was installed at Bicton House, the home of Baron John Rolle a year later.

The talk will be given by local author, Pamela Vass.
