We’ve just began working with the guys at Backlit Gallery in Nottingham to produce a digital archive for Samuel Morley a wealthy textile manufacturer whose philanthropy, political radicalism and work to improve human rights is deserving of a more lasting legacy.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund the project will be a digital archive, showcasing important events and objects from the life of Morley. We’re looking forward to getting started.
