Important Update on Marconi's Hall Street Factory Project

News from the Essex Industrial Heritage Group:

A partnership which includes the Marconi Heritage Group and Chelmsford Civic Society are seeking to buy the lease on half of the ground floor of the Marconi Hall Street factory – the first wireless factory in the world – to create a community and heritage asset. They have launched a national and international appeal for the funds to purchase a 99 year lease, after which they will be applying to the Heritage Lottery Fund for equipping and fitting it out as an educational and heritage resource. Pledges are already mounting up, but much more is needed. To read more about the appeal and pledge money to this very worthwhile project go to: https://spacehive.com/marconiscienceworX
