Collected conversations

We are keen to continue to collect oral histories of Daventry and welcome you to get in touch with stories and memories you might have and would like us to record. Below you can enjoy some of our videos and conversations so far.

Listen to female employees of Stead & Simpson in conversation about their time at the Daventry factory.
