Echo from the past: Butterley Engineering 1985

A lifetime ago, I worked for a heavy engineering design and manufacturing company in Ripley in Derbyshire. Sadly the site was run down last year with business transferred elsewhere within and without the holding company. The manufacturing site has some historical relevance though and the website and forum has been tracking the demolition works.A friend pointed out to me a recent posting of a copy of a 1985 company magazine featuring news about improvements to the site and a photograph of me and my boss at the time sat at a CAD workstation. Fortunately I am seen only in profile, which does not look much different from how I am now.
