Commercial photography for Transport For London at DeepStore Records Storage Facility, Winsford, Cheshire.

This fascinating shoot was back in January for a feature in TfL’s “On the Move” magazine which is for London Underground staff. Two staff members, Neal and Lorna won a competition to have a guided tour around TfL’s DeepStore archives, which is located inside a salt mine run by DeepStore Records Storage Facility, at Winsford, Cheshire.  Conditions in the mine are perfect for preserving documents. The temperature is a constant 13-14 degrees all round and it’s absolutely bone dry. Following a descent of several hundred metres down the mine’s shaft we boarded a mini bus and traveled nearly a mile to reach the cavern housing TFL’s document archive. Tamara Thornhill, an archivist at TFL accompanied Neil and Lorna around the mine. The achieve houses documents going back hundreds of years, lots of property deeds connected to TFL as well as information re engineering works over the years are contained in the collection.
