Covid-19 Update

Max are pleased to confirm that our teams are still fully operational in line with the latest government guidelines. This includes our off-site team at ONS. We do understand, however, that for many businesses and institutions this is unfortunately still not the case. We continue to wish you well during this difficult period and look forward to somewhat easier times, hopefully by Spring 2021.

If you would like to schedule a call for a future date, please complete our contact form indicating a preferred day. We have decided to freeze our prices until May 1st 2021 to ensure that our customers are not penalised by the ongoing restrictions. We may decide to extend this date further still.

In the meantime, please do take a look at our podcasts page . The passion, enthusiasm and insight from our guest speakers has been inspirational, especially given the circumstances.

Alison Cable – Rochester Bridge Trust

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.
