A photo of Lydbrook Cable Works

A photograph of the inside of the Old Cable Works at Lydbrook circa 1950s by Ray Buckley.

Bill Nash added: "... My father G S G Nash (Godfrey) was a design engineer (later Chief design Engineer) at the Cable Works at the time of this photo - until the Cable Works closure when he went elsewhere in A. E. I. He started in the drawing office before the war - was in the army for the duration and returned after being demobbed. He and colleagues from the works were in the TA (HLI) at Ross immediately prior to the war".

Bruce Bulgin added (February 2016): "... My late grandfather Vincent Plascott was at the factory and also moved to Woolwich when the factory closed and was then with AEI until he retired. I know he was involved in the manufacture of PLUTO."
