The Steam Plough Club has had recognition from the Museum of English Rural Life at Reading for its role in the preservation of important archives.
Following a national grant the museum is proceeding to restore its collection of Fowler records which cover a lengthy period of the production at the Steam Plough Works. There are 37 volumes plus many photographic records. These records are an invaluable resource covering in detail engine production and much other information. The photographs show one volume the binding of which has almost disintegrated and the same that has been restored – a wonderful transformation.
As noted the Steam Plough Club has supported this application with a donation. This has been followed by an individual member.
Should further members wish to make an individual donation to this important project please contact The Secretary.
