We kindly ask you to be vigilant and respectful of social distancing as this is new to everyone and we are still learning how to operate the site with these new circumstances.

Crown Valve Appeal

Before Covid-19 started, the Trust ordered two new crown valves and placed a contract for the alterations to the steam pipes from the boilers to the original steam main.
The total cost of this work will be £11,500 which will leave a sizeable hole in the Trust's reserves as we have no income until the virus can be controlled and the museum will be able to open again.
If anyone feels they can donate towards the expense of this project, you can send a cheque to the address on our contact page or pay through PayPal on our donations page.
Thankyou.
Crown Valve

Archive
This is a database engine with scanned images of archival information about and from Claymills and the Burton on Trent area. The site has its own dedicated search engine which just requires key words to search. It provides access to all the pictures and documents that have been scanned so far (841 at the last count). As this is a long term project it was decided to publish work done so far. Note the new catalogue page and document index on the search results page. (comments please).
