Dowty Archive news

The Dowty Heritage website

The Dowty Heritage website was launched at the end of August. It is now being populated by members of the Dowty community and we are hoping that many more people will have a look at it, and, if they want to, share stories, photographs and videos from their time at the Dowty Group (if they worked there). We are really pleased with it and think it will be an excellent legacy of the Dowty project. It can be found here:

Cataloguing news: Ally McConnell, Collections Management Archivist writes -

I am getting on well with my systematic listing and repackaging of the Dowty collection. I have listed the equivalent of 200 boxes and have 6 volunteers helping to enhance the work, who are also very kindly starting to tackle the large amount of photographic material. There is still a long way to go but it’s going well and I am learning a lot still about the company and how it developed.
