‪Well presented history of an enlightened man‬

‪Martin Nadaud was educated to a basic standard (unusual in France at the time) which stood him in good stead in later years. Because of his strongly held social principles he fell out with the French king and was exiled in England for 20 years or so. During that time he taught in an English school under the name of Mr Martin, so that his past history would not be revealed. He was a strong advocate of teaching young people practical skills, enthusing over UK Mechanics Institutes. A builder by trade he encountered much unfair treatment of builders in France. For example if a builder fell off unsafe scaffolding he would receive no compensation or pay. Only when he returned to work would he get paid. He changed all that. He also introduced the concept of pensions paid for during a working life - again copied from UK laws. And although he lived in the 19th century he predicted that England and France would one day be linked by a tunnel. This is a real visionary at a time when French nobility did all they could to suppress the working poor.
The exhibition is explained by an audio guide. The price is a mere 6 Euros, 5 Euros for concessions. A bargain, and allow at least a couple of hours.‬
