Chair of Trustees

I have been a volunteer at the Museum for 40 years, and a trustee for 15.

After obtaining a degree in biochemistry at the University of Sussex I worked for the Department of the Environment for 13 years and then moved to English Heritage a year after it was established. I worked in a number of areas finishing up as Director of Conservation responsible for all research, archaeology, designation and archiving carried out by the organisation, including the National Monuments Record.

I am a member of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation. I currently carry out some consultancy work and am trustee of a number of charities principally in the heritage sector. I am also to be found cleaning exhibits for the Electric House when not involved in strategic planning and grant applications!
