Underground Surveys Successfully Digitised

Original documents from the Stabilisation Project have been successfully digitised

Working in partnership with Combe Down Heritage Society, records pertaining to the Combe Down Stone Mines Stabilisation Project have been successfully digitised and measures in place to ensure their preservation for future generations.

CDHS very kindly permitted the removal, transportation and return of their underground surveys, maps and archaeological drawings collection. The Museum of Bath Stone delivered this treasured collection to the team at PostScript Frome who, using the finest technology created exceptionally high-resolution duplications of these unique and irreplaceable paper records.

CDHS have very kindly given permission for the museum to share this fascinating material and, many highlights from this collection will be featuring in the vibrant new visitor offering set to open to visitors in January 2023.

Our greatest thanks go to Combe Down Heritage Society for collaborating with the Museum of Bath Stone to develop a digital version of these records. This development enables both organisations to make the records much more readily accessible and, removes the need to handle the original records to access the information contained within.

We are delighted to share a preview from one of the underground surveys successfully digitised below:
