Print Works! Saving the archive of a lost Thanet industry

A project has been launched to save an archive which documents the Isle of Thanet's lost printing tradition.

Margate once had a thriving print industry, at its peak employing thousands of people.

A grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund will pay for archives to be explored, catalogued, digitised and shared.

Sarah Saunders spoke to Dan Thompson and Dawn Cole, who have been driving the project forward.
