A guided tour of our history

If you have been attending some of the events that we are part of, you may have seen our museum banners, telling the story of our company from the beginnings in 1854 to the present day.

Richard Felton, the curator of the Redpath Sugar Museum, has recorded an audio commentary for these banners, which you can listen to below. There are five banners in total, just scroll down to listen to them all.
