Forging Ahead: Dudley Weighbridge Office

As part of our BCLM: Forging Ahead development plans we are  looking for memories from the 1950s of the Dudley Weighbridge office. 

What we need & how to contact us

Dudley weighbridge office

Dudley Weighbridge Office will be recreated and set in the 1950s as part of the new 1940s to 1960s street providing the opportunity for visitors to learn about public weighbridges and how they worked.

To help us in our recreation, we would love to talk to anyone with memories of the weighbridge. Do you remember the Dudley Weighbridge? Did you work in the Weighbridge Office, or ever use the service? Do you remember Meena the elephant being weighed in 1949? Do you know who made the Victorian pre-fab building?
