SBN  member, The Saltford Brass Mill Project, was very pleased earlier this year to be able to access excellent preliminary legal advice from Sara Whittock of Whittock Consulting – Legal Services, who are also SBN members. This has enabled the Project confidently to take forward negotiation of a formal arrangement with the Local Authority – Bath and North East Somerset Council, who lease the Mill.

This will set out the terms and responsibilities under which the Project (a registered charity) and the Council work together to provide education and information for the public benefit on the industrial, commercial and social history of this important remnant of a significant industry which grew up in the Eighteenth Century in the Avon valley and Bristol area.
