Interest Groups

There are a number of archaeological interest groups operating in the North West.

The Industrial Archaeology Panel

The North West Industrial Archaeology Panel was established in the late 1980s as part of the CBA’s initiative to promote Industrial Archaeology at a regional level. Its first chairman was Tom Clare, from the University of Liverpool, and currently Dr Michael Nevell, University of Salford, is Chairman. Covering the North West Region from Cheshire to Cumbria, the panel membership is voluntary and comprises a cross-section of those interested in Industrial Archaeology within the region; county archaeologists, local authority conservation officers, museum archaeologists, voluntary society members, academics and professionals. The Panel acts as an information exchange within the region but also from time to time makes representations on planning and research matters. Over the last 20 years the Panel has promoted and held on a regular basis the North West Industrial Archaeology Conference, supported local industrial archaeology publications, and publishes an occasional newsletter, Industrial Archaeology North West.
