Archives

The Aerospace Bristol collection embraces objects and archives relating to the Bristol Aeroplane Company, its predecessor and successor companies (the ‘Bristol family’ of companies) and its workforce.

A major part of the collection is the substantial company archive which dates from 1910.  The archive includes glass plate negatives, photographs, minute books, sales ledgers and account books, design drawings and film.   There are also books and magazines supporting the collection.  The collection is not yet catalogued and work has commenced on this, the work is being supported by a team of dedicated volunteers.

The archive will form part of the Aerospace Bristol, which opens in 2017.  The plans include the provision of an archive repository to PD5454 standards, a reading room and office space on the ground floor of the Concorde building.

The archive will be open for members of the public to use for research purposes in late 2017, more details will be posted on this website as the cataloguing of the collection progresses.
