How to buy it, and a request for help with the next.....
We're proud to publish our first history book, as the story behind Portland Works is fascinating. Campaign member Anna de Lange has researched the RF Mosley family history, how Portland Works came to be designed and built and how the Works played its part in Harry Brearley's struggle to gain recognition for his rustless steel.
We have been sent so much additional information that there's now a FREE SUPPLEMENT to our booklet on RF Mosley, Portland Works and the Stainless Steel story. Download it as a pdf on this link:

THE NEXT BOOK PROJECT - we need your help !
We are gradually meeting people who have photos of the Works. Some remember working there, others used to visit fathers and grandfathers at work. For our next book we want to gather both photos and eyewitness stories about the people and companies who inhabited Portland Works in the latter half of the 20th century, and bring the story up to date.
If you have any photos or memories of the Works that would help us to bring the story up-do-date please get in touch with Anna by email (use email@example.com) or by post at the usual Portland Works address. If you live fairly close by Anna is happy to come and talk to you, so that you do not have to do the writing of your memories yourself.
We look forward to hearing from you !
