Sad news that Robin passed peacefully away on 23rd March.
Robin was one of the founder members and wrote many articles for the BIAS journal (some of which can be seen on the BIAS website). For a short time he was the editor.
Robin was a chartered surveyor for the waterways with a passion for Industrial Archaeology, History and his family heritage. His proudest achievement was saving Lock Cottage on the canal at Oxenhall which was scheduled for demolition. He excavated the lock and restored the house and both are now preserved for the public historical interest.
Anyone who knew him is welcome to join us at a memorial service to celebrate his life.

Bristol, BS9 3PQ
Following the service the reception will be at St Monica’s Trust, Cote Lane, Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol.
