Hard Luck Faversham! Good Luck GLIAS.
In February BBC television held the final for its annual industrial archaeology competition. As reported in the last KAR the Faversham gunpowder mill project organised by the Faversham Society was on the short list for the competition.
During the programme a short film on the work of each competitor and a commentary was shown. Faversham was not one of the lucky ones, but out of nearly ten contestants from Scotland to Kent, two local societies were picked. The first prize of £250 was justifiably given to the Greater London Industrial Archaeological Society for its work in the Greater London area. The judges felt GLIAS task was a large and formidable one and needed the most encouragement and support. The second prize of £75 was awarded to the Dolphine, a Sittingbourne based group, working on an old Thames barge.
