The Trust is currently collaborating with the architect of EEDA's chosen
developer for the Cranfield's Mill site, Wharfside Regeneration, to secure a
public display and storage area in the scheme for the potentially large
volume of maritime artefacts now being offered to the Trust for safe
keeping. Both EEDA and the Borough Council have expressed their support for
the Trust's aims in this respect, and it is understood that the designs for
a planning application will be completed in the early autumn.
meantime the Trust is seeking temporary storage accommodation for its
artefacts, with the co-operation of the Port owners, ABP. If any member of
the Society would like to contact the Trust about these or any other aspects
of the Trust's work, they are welcome to get in touch with the Chairman of
the Trust's Committee,
Des Pawson, on 01473 690090.
