The donor of this artefact, Joan Wilkinson, told us her Godfather Peter Jibson worked in the offices at the mill for many years.
When the mill closed he was asked if there was anything he would like as a keepsake, he decided on this brass plaque which had been mounted on the engine called “Kate”, it used to be visible from the street when passing the mill.
He had it mounted and it hung in his home for the next 30 years.
Peter died in 1989, his wife Marie passed away recently.
Joan adds that the time is right to pass this precious relic into the safe keeping of the AHS.
