Archivists in Gloucester are calling for people with links to a local company to help tell its story.

Fielding and Platt, which employed thousands of staff to work on engineering projects in the city from 1866 until the 1990s, is the focus of a new oral history project, led by Gloucestershire Archives and Gloucester City Centre Community Partnership and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

If you have a family story or memorabilia related to the firm, please email Ollie Taylor at oliver.taylor@gloucestershire.gov.uk or phone 01452 427591.
