British Welding Research Association

From Graces Guide
1948. Abington Hall.

1946 With professional institutions debarred from being able to also act as research organisations, the Institute of Welding had to split and so formed the British Welding Research Association as a separate body.

1946 The British Welding Research Association acquired Abington Hall, near Cambridge, as well as also owning 29 Park Crescent in London, which later became the metallurgical laboratory; the butler’s pantry served as the polishing room and the coachman’s quarters hosted the machine shop.

1965 Formation of the School of Applied Non-Destructive Testing by the British Welding Research Association and the Non-Destructive Society of Great Britain. The new school pioneered formal training in further disciplines including ultrasonic weld testing and radiographic interpretation.

1968 The 2 bodies merged once more. The Institute of Welding was renamed as The Welding Institute.
