The Devil’s Porridge Museum is delighted to help with research enquiries.

If you have an enquiry relating to the workers of HM Factory Gretna please email

If your enquiry is relating to an object held in the museum’s collection please email our Curator, Rebecca, on

We also have a library and archive that can be accessed by appointment.


Requesting images for study purposes or any other unpublished use

If you require a digital image of one of our objects or photographs for research or study purposes, or wish to request any other unpublished use of an image, please contact

Please include the following details:

  • Object or photograph name and accession number (if applicable)
  • A description of the image that you want to use
  • Your intended use for the image

We do not have high quality digital images of all objects available in stock which means your request may take longer if new photography is required.


Requesting permission to reproduce images

If you wish to reproduce an image of any object in the collection, including in a publication, television programme or other commercial format, please request information on reproducing images.
