Memories of Sellafield recorded

The memories of workers at the Sellafield nuclear plant are being recorded for a book.

It will be one strand of the Sellafield Stories project, which is being funded by a £261,000 British Nuclear Fuels Ltd (BNFL) Legacy project grant.

The book will be edited by author Hunter Davies, who was brought up in Carlisle, and is part of an oral history project.

The aim is to tell future generations about the nuclear industry.

The project is being run by Cumbria County Council's archive service and local studies library in Whitehaven.

Ninety people, including current and ex-workers, have been interviewed so far. The recordings will form the basis of an oral archive.

A CD and DVD, a travelling exhibition, education pack and website will also be created.
