Rolling the World

Aveling-Barford and Robey (click on the links at the bottom of the page to access the exhibitions)


The business collections of two Lincolnshire heavy industrial engineering firms; Aveling-Barford and Robey have been united together under one cataloguing project ‘Rolling the World’. The aptly named project emphasises that the products of these two firms were widely sold and distributed across the globe. This reflects an international as well as a regional significance for both collections.

These collections contain a wealth of administrational, manufacturing, drawing and social records, including work and engine registers, catalogues, instructions, part lists, drawing registers, engineering plans, and photographs. These are available for a wide range of machinery.
