Nominated for Category E: Lifetime Contribution to the Historic Environment by Communities Along the Carron Association.

There is nothing Brian Watters does not know about the Carron Iron Works near Falkirk.  He is as passionate about researching and recording the ironworks as he is about sharing his knowledge for the benefit of current and future generations.

By working tirelessly for over 30 years on this project Brian has shown outstanding dedication and commitment to preserving and celebrating the history of the Carron Iron Works. He works tirelessly in his efforts to share his passion and keep the memories and facts alive. He has given numerous talks and presentations to local schools, community groups and history societies who benefit enormously from his unrivalled expertise on the subject.  Brian has also written two books on the subject, both sold out and both were published with the help of Falkirk Local History Society.
