Bulletin 20

Bulletins have been published by the Society since 1976 and all past copies are available in digital format on one CD. See Order Form for details.
In 2008, Bulletin 19 won the Association for Industrial Archaeology award for Journals.
Originally, Bulletins were the main periodical of the Society and contained
a range of articles and reports written
by members. More recently, Bulletins have developed into a series of occasional monologues on a single topic such as Bulletin 20, published in June 2014, which is devoted to the history of S Russell & Sons, iron founders and engineers of Bath lane, Leicester.
