We recently added our online Archive to the Virtual Museum, the result of a Heritage funded project to digitise our archives, particularly The George Twigg Collection.

George Twigg (1927-2016) Was A Chemical Engineer who Worked For BP Chemicals (Formerly Murgatroyd’s).

George took a keen interest in the history of the company and the salt industry in general and  was one of the volunteers working with Lady Rochester and Brian Curzon to re-open the Salt Museum, at Northwich. His personal archive includes photographs, objects, technical papers, drawings, film footage, maps etc.  George Twigg had produced a few printed leaflets and gave historical advice to anyone who wanted it and he was instrumental in ensuring that Murgatroyd’s Brine Pump was preserved and scheduled for future generations. This archives page is dedicated to George’s work and his passion that his research should be accessible to all.
