Winner of John Armstrong Award for Transport Archives

The winner of The John Armstrong Award for Transport Archives, a special, one-off cataloguing grant for £4,000 jointly funded by a bequest from the late John Armstrong and the BAC, is The Motorway Archive Trust collection which is held by Glamorgan Archives.

The judging panel were impressed with the high standard of the submissions; this made the decision not an easy one. Glamorgan Archives’ application highlighted the importance of The Motorway Archive Trust collection, both locally and nationally, and it gave good examples of the research, promotional and user engagement benefits that will be gained once the collection is catalogued.

The Motorway Archive Trust was established in 1999 with the aim of advancing public education by acquiring and making available archives relating to the creation of the British motorway network.
