Information for researchers

The Ballast Trust is not a collecting archive. We only have custody of collections whilst we are processing them on behalf of an archive repository. For these reasons we are not open to the public and do not operate a traditional archive searchroom facility. However, we are happy to help with enquiries if we can and welcome visitors by arrangement.

We have a small number of reference resources that we may be able to make available for research purposes and some collections which belong to the Trust (primarily the Dan McDonald negative collection).

Please contact us if you think we may be able to help.
