There are already 15 societies and organisations signed up to have stands at the Fair and more are available. These include local groups such as Alderford water mill, Upminster Windmill and the Bulmer Brick and Tile Company, plus national organisations such as the Association for Industrial Archaeology and the European Route for Industrial Heritage (ERIH), which has a route covering Essex and the rest of East Anglia.
There will be five short talks given on the textile industries of Essex, the public water supply in Colchester, industry of the Tilbury area and ERIH.
Visitors will also be able to see the displays on local industry in the Braintree District Museum (for which an admission fee is payable) and there will be Braintree Town Trail leaflets available should visitors wish to follow a self-guided trail of industrial heritage sites in Braintree.
It all promises to be a very exciting, interesting and stimulating day, so please put the date in your diaries, tell your family and friends all about it and encourage any local heritage groups to which you belong to take part in the day.
