Alison Cable, archivist at The Rochester Bridge Trust, talks about her experience of moving from roles in local authorities looking after dozens of collections, to this very specialised collection. The Trust is one of the oldest charities in England and the archive goes back to the early medieval time. It holds documents accrued by the Trust over the centuries, including civil engineering documents from suppliers nationwide and material of interest to local historians. She talks about the challenges of digitising oversized paper based plans and the challenge of archiving born digital material from contractors. Alison discusses her hopes for increasing visitor numbers to the archive with the refurbishment of the medieval chapel owned by The Trust.
