Another week and more jobs completed on the Murgatroyd’s site, in stunning sunshine. The building is looking different with the dark oak timber preservative applied, the fence looks like it’s been there forever. Lots more painting to get on with while the weather holds. Two more audio tapes have been found, recorded by Salt Historian George Twigg in the 1980’s. One of them  is of J A Robertson, the first mercury cell room plant manager. Mr Robertson can be seen in the film footage we have of the chemical works being built at Elworth (see https://www.middlewich-heritage.org.uk/art-murgatroyds-brine-pump/). The reels have been sent to a audio specialist to be copied to a digital format and improve the sound quality. Very much looking forward to what Mr Robertson has to say!
