Welcome


This is the homepage for the Clifton Suspension Bridge online catalogue. It describes the collections and archives owned by the Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust.

To search for items and collections click on the Browse button, or enter a word in the Search box in the top banner above. More help with searching the catalogue can be found in Search tips. This catalogue is currently being developed and new descriptions of material will be added over time. If there is anything that you would like to see in person, or if you would like some help or information, please contact our Archivist at archives@cliftonbridge.org.uk.

Please note that most of the archives dating from before the Trust was established in 1952 are held as part of the Brunel Collection by the Brunel Institute. These collections are referenced DM484 and DM1929 and descriptions of them can found in the University of Bristol's online catalogue.

This online catalogue uses AtoM; a fully web based archival description application that is based on International Council on Archives (ICA) standards. AtoM is an acronymn for Access to Memory.
