I was brought up in Newport, south Wales and studied history at Aberystwyth and Manchester Metropolitan Universities. I managed libraries in Newport before moving to Rochdale, Greater Manchester where I ran the local archives service. I was responsible for cultural services and tourism in Rochdale when the new lottery funded museum and art gallery opened in 2001. I have written several books on local and social history including Conflict and Co-operation, Down Poorhouse Lane and Suspicions Deaths in Rochdale (!). I produced a number of historically orientated films and videos before relocating with my wife Sue to Anglesey. I have since been involved in community archives and joined Menai Bridge Community Heritage Trust in 2015. My interests include historical research, walking, jazz and American comic books.

I am a graduate in Civil and Structural Engineering from Sheffield University and a Chartered Civil Engineer. I have spent my whole working life with local authorities, the first 25 years in Highway Design and Management in both England and Wales, then, briefly in general Municipal Engineering. For the last 12 years I have been involved, on a part time basis, in Coastal Defence works.
I was introduced to Anglesey in the late 1960s by my wife, an Anglesey girl, and my fascination and admiration for the bridges dates from then. I have sailed and raced on the Menai Straits for the last 15 years and moved to live on the Island in 2010.

I am a chartered civil engineer with a degree in Civil Engineering, originally from Pen Llŷn but living in Bangor for the past 34 years. My background is mainly in the water industry but I have also worked on highways and structures. I worked for nearly 40 years on schemes in England and Scotland but mainly in North Wales and since retiring, my life is busy with grandfather duties and other voluntary work. I joined Menai Heritage as a volunteer and then a trustee since I am a great admirer of engineers like Telford and Stephenson and the innovative work they carried out in an era without the technological advantages we have today. I am also keen to share the awareness of the heritage that we are so fortunate to be part of in the area we live in.
