THE photographic archive collection amassed by David Lipson on view at the Great Dunmow Maltings has proved such a success that the presentation is being extended until at least Easter.

Over the last half of the 20th Century Mr Lipson actively captured many local personalities and events on film, recording the busy social and business life of Great Dunmow. His collection was displayed at a special exhibition held at The Maltings in 2000 - the first time the building was open to the public after extensive restoration. Following his death, his wife, Sheila, kindly donated the collection to The Maltings and it has now been preserved for posterity in digital format.

In addition to the David Lipson Collection, the Great Dunmow Maltings Trustees have added two new presentations - "Gone to Burton" and "How Malt Is Made".

Visitors can select which presentation they wish to see or, of course, can see all three.

The presentations will be shown continuously each Saturday and Sunday during normal opening hours of 11am to 4pm. Admission to The Maltings, the town museum and the David Lipson Collection costs £1.50 for adults and £1 for concessions and children. The building is fully accessible to disabled visitors.
